Abstract

In 1970 when I was twenty-three years old and living in Buenos Aires, I visited a university in Rio de Janeiro, PUC.1 This was the week before Carnival,2 and I seem to recall hearing the news of Bertrand Russell’s death while I was there. (I have an even more vivid memory as a small boy, of seeing a dramatic headline in red, “Einstein Dead”.)
