This chapter addresses the question of what led Wittgenstein to study philosophy with Russell in Cambridge. Since the narrative of Wittgenstein's life before 1911 is well summarized in available biographies, the focus will be on a few points including Wittgenstein's early life, his experiences as a research student at Manchester, his interest in the philosophy of mathematics, logicism, and Russell's paradox.

Keywords:   Manchester, philosophy of mathematics, logicism, Russell's paradox
