|Lecture I||The Rejection of Metaphysics|
Russell's introduction is therefore an independent account of the ideas presented in the Tractatus.
These notes comment upon the ideas as presented by Russell, in the context of the year 2000 (i.e. with the benefit of almost a century of further development in mathematical logic). I make no attempt to evaluate whether Russell's introduction is accurate in what it says about the Tractatus. Russell's introduction is intended to be read before reading the Tractatus. This commentary is intended to be read after reading the introduction.
