Mysticism in Trinity book
This chapter explores the imaginative work of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century, Ludwig Wittgenstein, and the roots of his monumental Tractatus. Wittgenstein's letter to Russell about the Varieties of Religious Experience suggested to Ray Monk that the comments, coming at precisely the moment when Russell had expressed his desire to establish a harmony between and the intellect and mysticism. It seemed to Russell to secure a special intimate bond between himself and Wittgenstein. However, in July 1914, Russell himself would soon write, another essay on mysticism, titled, "Mysticism and Logic", which was substantially different. It is generally assumed that Wittgenstein also, from his early years in Vienna, Berlin or Manchester, was aware of the most important writings by the main German-Austrian scientists. Both in Manchester and at Trinity, he was at the center of the most fundamental scientific work in England.
