Summary
The study of modern mathematical logic took the discipline out of the mind of the philosopher and placed it squarely within the realm of numbers. In this program, world-renowned author and professor Bryan Magee and noted philosopher A. J. Ayer discuss how the theories of Gottlob Frege and Bertrand Russell depsychologized philosophy and laid the foundation for modern logic. The discussion includes Frege's theory of quantification and Russell's theory of types and descriptions, and their contributions to the philosophy of language.
