- George Orwell Quotes-

George Orwell
George Orwell
He was English novelist, essayist, and critic. Throughout his lifetime, the great English author continually questioned all "official" or "accepted" versions of history. He is considered one of the most prominent writers of the 1930s and 40s. His intelligent voice and satirical style, combined with his harsh criticisms and brilliant essays, led Orwell to become one of the most celebrated novelists and a true master at the craft of writing.
(1903-1950)

He was a British philosopher, logician, social critic best known for his work in mathematical logic and analytic philosophy. His most influential contributions include his defense of logicism (the view that mathematics is in some important sense reducible to logic), his refining of the predicate calculus introduced by Gottlob Frege (which still forms the basis of most contemporary logic), Accrding to him, the world consists of just one type of substance, neither exclusively mental nor exclusively physical. Russell is generally recognized as one of the founders of modern analytic philosophy, and one of the most important logicians of the twentieth century. (1770 1827)
