Notes, topics or text 

BR tells him that: "It is possible to be a first-rate technical mathematician without ever bothering about foundations, and, conversely, one may be first-rate on foundations without being expert in other parts of mathematics."

Since BR has not worked on mathematical logic, except spasmodically, since 1914, he suggests Quine as being able to provide more current advice in response to Casshyap's questions.
