75R. H. H. Price to Harrod , 19 May  [a]
Price congratulates Harrod on his "elevation to the ranks of the Immortals",  and comments on philosophy in Cambridge. In particular, he summarizes a paper by "[Harrod's] friend Miss Stebbing" on Whitehead's theory of Objects,  and the ensuing debate. Price likes "[Harrod's] friend Braithwaite",  although he finds it hard to swallow his opinion that Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus is the most important book since the Critique of Pure Reason. 
2. The paper was later read before the Aristotelian Society, on 6 July 1925, and published as L. S. Stebbing, "Universals and Professor Whitehead's Theory of Objects", Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society, NS XXV, 1925, pp. 305-30.
3. Richard B. Braithwaite, Cambridge philosopher.
4. L. Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, London: Kegan Paul, 1922; I. Kant, The Critique of Pure Reason (1781).
