I have to write about 300 words on Bertrand Russell's: 1) Russell's Paradox 2) Russell's Defense of Logicism I've been to many sites and they are all so confusing. I can't make sense of what these two accomplishments of Russell's are. Can anybody please help me out by explaining one or both of these topics to me? I'd really appreciate it and it doesn't have to be too long. I just need a general idea. Thanks. Do you know what I found? Russell's paradox is in set theory. Basically, it is about a set of all sets that is often grouped with itself. Logicism is the view that all mathematics reduces to logic. Russell was in search of a perfect language of which an important part would be mathematics. Look up Cantor.
