Russell led the British "revolt against idealism". He is considered one of the founders of analytic philosophy along with his predecessor Gottlob Frege. He is widely held to be one of the 20th century's premier logicians. Written at the peak of his career, The Scientific Outlook combines history of science with philosophical scrutiny of the scientific worldview, culminating in cautionary note on the potential implications of a future where science supersedes social and political values.
