avoids the nitpicking over whether Wittgenstein and Russel were really philosophers

If you actually read more than the Principia, or the Tractatus, it's pretty obvious that they both are. Why else would there be about 50 pot-boiler books by Russell about "philosophy", or Wittgenstein, you know, living with GEM Anscombe, and working with her? Maybe scientists think only the male analytic philosophers aren't really philosophers?
