BR critiques The Experience Universe. While he is sympathetic to many of the ideas, he ultimately does not agree. The complete postscript is missing. However, on the dictated (record 126091) and TL(CAR) (record 3230) forms of the letter, the complete postscript states: "You say that mathematical logic should only be employed where number or quantity is concerned. The main point of mathematical logic is to extend mathematical methods beyond this narrow region."

130892

"Ruja's reply was interesting but obscure to me. He said that BR ended up in the arms of Arafat or something like that. Didn't know BR had taken a position on the Palestinian question, too."

130893

"My autobiography is in I hope the last stages. I hope it won't be a posthumous work."

130894

Hook thinks Ruja was "too kind" to Langhammer in his review for Russell. Langhammer, according to Hook, quotes from BR's Theory and Practice of Bolshevism, but  "... ignores the remarkable analyses and predictions in the book of how Lenin's terror would transform the Utopian dream we all shared into a totalitarian nightmare."

"The really unforgivable theory about Russell is that knowing the truth about totalitarian communism his last political words, so to speak, were 'Long live Ho Chi Minh!' whose triumph resulted in the next to the worst Holocausts of modern times!"

130895

"I have received the transcript of my 'debate' with Russell. Incidentally, there was no rehearsal. We just engaged in general conversation before we went on the air."

"I am looking forward to receiving your letter anent my Russell piece in Encounter. I can now, thanks to you, date that exchange between Russell and me on his Glamour article. It was not published during the hot days of the controversy. It came out when there was some hope of taking an appeal and before he won his judgment against Barnes. My memory of my expostulations with him is sharp and strong because we were trying to emphasize his purely scholarly achievements in the public mind and blot out his role as advisor to the love-lorn."

130896

"It just suggested itself to me that the tapes I mailed by first class postage from here are being held up somewhere at Canadian customs." Blackwell notes in the margin that only one tape has arrived.

"P.S. Did you get the Reprint of the Russell Encounter article 2 March 1984"?

130897

"Here is the article I mentioned last week" (not present).

"Have the tapes reached you? They were marked Feb. 24."

130898

"I have not yet received a reply to my inquiry about whether or not you have published or intend to publish my exchange with Bertrand Russell in the Bertrand Russell Archives." The exchange between Hook and BR occurred in 1953 on the BBC.

130899

"This will authorize you to reprint in the Bertrand Russell Archives my exchange with BR over the BBC in 1953. Perhaps you have already done so. I rely on you for an accurate transcription."

"I trust this finds you well and that the powers that be at McMaster are aware of how much they owe you for your life long dedication to the BR project."

130900

"Thank you for your kindness and hospitality in showing me around the Russell Archives. You are certainly devoted to Russell and his memory."
