russell & whitehead’s “principia mathematica”



a math masterpiece by alfred north whitehead and bertrand russell, discussed by practically every philosopher and read by practically none— it is arguably read only by three persons: the two authors and the editor.
the proof of 1 + 1 = 2 comes to its end on page 86 of volume ii of the three volumes of russell & whitehead’s “principia mathematica” (1910–13)—a typical page looks like “mathematical wallpaper” to the layperson.
