From this viewpoint, a comprehensive, systematic philosophical synthesis is seen to be extremely difficult and demanding, involving interrelations of history, the sciences, and mathematical logic; yet this goal is intelligible and worth striving for. In this sense, Russell's philosophy bridges the gap between the old, represented by the idealism dominant in Europe in the late nineteenth century, and the new, represented by analytic philosophy of the late twentieth century. As a transition between the old and the new, Russell's philosophy was rooted in the British empiricist tradition of David Hume and John Stuart Mill, and his study of the history of Western philosophy led him to give especial value to the method of Descartes and the perspectives of Leibniz.

Moore's "The Nature of Judgment" was aimed at this mentalistic analysis of judgment and opposed it with an analysis of concepts as objective. Russell tried in a similar way to treat the proposition as objective and its terms as real, that is, as having a logical status rather than a psychological one. 14 A fourth major point in the criticism of idealism concerns the analysis of the knowing relation of subject and object. For the idealist, the object of knowledge is taken as being within the knowing process, or the object of experience is taken as a part of experience.
