This chapter discusses Russell's fellowship dissertation on the philosophy of geometry. It has been stated in this chapter that Russell had no exceptional fondness for the topic, and that his knowledge on geometry was limited to the lessons in Euclid that he received from his brother. Despite his lack of knowledge, his dissertation has been a very important topic of philosophical discussion for many years.
