A commanding presence in French philosophy for the first half of the twentieth century, Brunschvicg espoused an idealist and neo-Hegelian philosophy, which sought to interpret the progress of self-consciousness in terms of the emergence of the natural sciences. He was equally well-known as a scholar and philosopher of mathematics, responsible for bringing Frege and Russell to the attention of French philosophers.
