1903 was a particularly significant year for the history of Europeanculture, both in term of the history of scientific thought and the history of philosophicalthought. At Trinity College in Cambridge, George Edward Moore published the articleThe Refutation of Idealism in «Mind» magazine, while Bertrand Russell published The Principles of Mathematics.
