Bertrand Russell et la métaphysique analytique

Abstract : The broad objective of this study is to examine the recurrence and the posterity of some arguments drawn up by Bertrand Russell to answer one of the main ontological question: How the elements of the being are related ? How can we answer this question without raising a bradleyan endless regress? Several strategies are assessed here: answering these questions by questioning the status of the bradleyan regresses (vicious or harmless regresses?), defining the nature of the relations (particulars or universals?, internal or external relations?) or using the epistemological perspective of the truthmakers. This study is focused on D. Armstrong?s Immanent Realism, K. Campbell?s Theory of Tropes, G. Rodriguez-Pereyra?s Resemblance Nominalism, and D. W. Mertz?s Moderate Realism.
