About This Item

New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1931. First American edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. 8vo. [4], v-xviii, [1], 2-292 pp. Green cloth with gold lettering on the spine. Edited by R.B. Braithwaite, M.A. With a preface by G.E. Moore, Litt.D. Slater 817. Dauben 1613. Ramsey is best-known for the mathematical theorem bearing his name (one of the fundamental results in combinatorics) and for his friendship and influence on Wittgenstein's later philosophy, but he made numerous other outstanding contributions as attested to by terminology inspired by his work that is still in use today ("Ramsey sentence", "Ramsey test", and "Ramsey theory"). Although his life was tragically cut short, Ramsey made major contributions in mathematics, economics, and philosophy. This collection, published shortly after his death, contains his principal work in philosophy and mathematics and one of his three influential papers in economics ("Truth and Probability"). A Near Fine book with a small name on each pastedown, very faint touch of spotting to the bottom textblock.
