This event celebrates the centenary of Russell’s remarkable book The Analysis of Mind. This 1921 work is one of the earliest, detailed presentations of a view he dubbed “neutral monism,” the monistic view that reality is composed of one basic kind of stuff that is itself neutral between the mental and the physical. For Russell, the mental and the physical are more complex facts built from this more basic stuff. This position continues to inspire discussion today under the name “Russellain Monism.” Our speakers will examine both the future of this position, and the historical context in which the view originally developed.
