About Us

2012 marks the 100th anniversary of Bertrand Russell’s The Problems of Philosophy. Envisioned by him as an introductory text, Russell also used the work to propose a number of novel theses which left an indelible mark on the development of analytic philosophy. This graduate conference at the University of Glasgow aimed to promote fresh engagement with the problems discussed by Russell, and to investigate the possibilities for useful dialogue between Russell’s approach to these issues and contemporary philosophy.
