The range of topics discussed by these two men is vast. Their correspondence throws new light on the spread of mathematical logic in France and on the relations between mathematicians, philosophers and linguists in the years from 1890 to 1910, with special focus on the sharp polemic concerning rigor versus intuition which during 1905 to 1907 involved prominent men such as H. Poincaré, B. Russell, P. Boutroux, B. Croce, G. Vailati and G. Vacca.
