"Despite the editor's modest claims for the book, The Cambridge Companion to Bertrand Russell succeeds in giving an accurate, multi-dimensional account of Russell's early and late epistemological, metaphysical and moral theories, one that shows the continuity in the development of his philosophy." u De Philosophia, Iva Apostolova
"There is no work currently available that would provide a better overall guide to Russell's philosophy and views of logic. It is certainly worth a read for studetns and scholars in philosophy and logic alike." Kevin C. Klement, University of Massachusetts
