ABSTRACT. This paper investigates Russell's logical atomist views on the nature of ontology and compares them with those of Wittgenstein, Carnap and Quine. It is argued that although Russell rejected Wittgenstein's Doctrine of Showing his conception of philosophy as an eliminativistic analysis provides a new perspective on Wittgenstein's thesis and on the debate between Carnap and Quine on ontology.
