Mathematician and philosopher. Fellow of Trinity College Cambridge and later Professor of Philosophy at Harvard. Together with Bertrand Russel wrote the 'Principia Mathematica', claimed to be the greatest contribution to logic since Aristotle. His incription translated in part reads: 'He could be said to have lived three lives in two countries, the first devoted to mathematics, the second to physics, the third to metaphysics'.
