Definition
English philosopher and mathematician instrumental in pioneering symbolic logic (1872-1970)
  • He spent hours waiting on Marguerite Benson—taking her shopping or off to movies he himself couldn't stand, talking with her politely about Thorstein Veblen and Bertrand Russell and Karl Marx (her false teeth clicking all the while she talked), swivving her night after night with a look of wild rapture on his face and a prayer that it soon be over in his head.
