El Tractatus al rescate de Principia Mathematica: Ramsey y los fundamentos logicistas de las matemáticas

##plugins.themes.bootstrap3.article.main##

Emilio Méndez Pinto

Resumen

Mi objetivo es discutir las principales dificultades que Frank P. Ramsey encontró en Principia Mathematica y la solución que, vía el Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, propuso al respecto. Sostengo que las principales dificultades que Ramsey encontró en Principia Mathematica están, todas, relacionadas con que Russell y Whitehead desatendieron la forma lógica de las proposiciones matemáticas, las cuales, según Ramsey, deben ser tautológicas.
