Alfred North Whitehead and Bertrand Russell, ­Principia Mathematica, vol. 2. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1927 (reproduction).

Bertrand Russell (1872–1970) was a philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, and writer; Alfred N. Whitehead (1861–1947) was a mathematician and philosopher known for his process ontologies. Principia Mathematica set out to answer whether mathematics could be conceived within a logical framework, and formed Whitehead and Russell’s attempt at proving that mathematics could be derived solely from logical concepts. Not least because of their advanced symbolic notations, it had a profound impact beyond that which their authors were able to imagine, boosting the belief in modern formal logic, setting the stage for subsequent work in mathematical logic, set theory, linguistic ana­ l­ysis, and analytical philosophy. It introduced important notions such as propositional function, logical construction, and type theory, and prepared the grounds for the work of Kurt Gödel and Alan Turing, among others. AF

Jan Mukařovský, Estetická funkce, norma a hodnota jako sociální fakty [Aesthetic function, norm and value as social facts]. Prague: Fr. Borový, 1936.

During the years between the two world wars, Prague developed into a vital center of intellectual and artistic avant-gardes, such as the Devětsil Group and the Prague surrealists. The Prague Linguistic Circle (1926–48), which continued the work of R ­ ussian formalism and established structuralism, had far-reaching effects. The Russian linguist Roman Jakobson and the Czech literary scholar Jan Mukařovský (1891–1975) were leading figures of the circle. Mukařovský’s seminal work Esteticka funkce, norma a hodnota jako socialni fakty expands Karl Bühler’s concept of
