The only available evidence from Wittgenstein's own pen of his philosophical progress consists of letters he wrote to Russell, usually during vacations when one or other of them was away from Cambridge. This chapter looks at these letters to understand the development of Wittgenstein's thought. Topics covered include Wittgenstein's early work on logic, his claim that there are no logical constants and real variables, logic as a special science, and logic as contentless.

Keywords:   logic, Wittgenstein, Russell, propositions
