Truth-Functional Logic and Logical Atomism
What was the influence of logical atomism?
As a philosophical doctrine, logical atomism was surpassed by logical positivism. However, its main rhetorical force did demolish what Bertrand Russell (1872–1970) termed “logical holism,” or the notion that the world is a whole, no part of which can be known independently of all others. Logical holism was the epistemological doctrine associated with absolute idealism.
