Keywords: logic; analytic philosophy; Russell; philosophical logic; relations

Summary/Abstract: The failure to distinguish method from subject-matter is in the basis of many of the problems that arise when Russell tries to think logical form relationally, and the absence of suffi cient control over the idealizations of the science of logic annihilates the thrust of his revolutionary turn to ‘logical data’ – an annihilation without which he could be not a mere predecessor but a direct participant in the so-called praxeological turn in logic. The article considers how this ensues from his conception of philosophical logic, how the relationist philosophical logical analysis is carried out and to what paradoxes it can lead. An idea is proposed as to what levels of idealization can become visible with such an optic on Russell.
