Summary/Abstract: The paper reveals the dream of Bertrand Russell to establish what he calls a ‘great school of philosophically educated mathematicians.’ Russell’s plan originated in a time when he was under the infl uence of Wittgenstein during his fi rst stay in Cambridge and ‘in the grip of romance’ with Ottoline Morel. Wittgenstein, Whitehead and Russell himself are the embodiment of Russell’s dream and the paper argues that the ‘great school’ is a specifi c by-product of Analytic Philosophy’s second phase of development (around 1910-1935). The dream is disclosed in three main contexts: the relationship between Russell and the young Wittgenstein, the relationship between Russell and lady Ottoline Morel and the second phase of the development of the analytic philosophical tradition.
