Despite his tragic death at the age of 26, Frank Ramsey (1903 - 1930) remains one of the most intriguing minds of the twentieth century. His thought had a profound influence on both Ludwig Wittgenstein and Bertrand Russell, and many strands of contemporary analytic philosophy find their origin in Ramsey's ideas.
Frank Ramsey: Truth and Success provides a much-needed introduction to the work of this undervalued thinker, and makes an important and profound contribution to our understanding of Ramsey's work and his place in twentieth century philosophy. It will be of interest to all students of logic, metaphysics and the history of philosophy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'In the twenty-six short years of his life, F.P.Ramsey sowed the seeds of all the most important ideas in twentieth-century philosophy. Pascal Engel and Jerome Dokic have done an excellent job of explaining Ramsey's contribution, and showing what he might have achieved had he lived.' - David Papineau, Kings College, London

'Of the people at Cambridge who studied the Tractatus in its first year of publication, Ramsey was undoubtedly the most perceptive. Although still an undergraduate, he was commissioned to write a review of Wittgenstein's work for the philosophical journal, Mind. The review remains to this day one of the most reliable expositions, and one of the most penetrating criticisms, of the work.'-Ray Monk, Ludwig Wittgenstein: The Duty of Genius
