Abstract: It's usually believed that the idea of applying logical methods to constructivist phenomenalism was, --in general- a result of Russell's originality. In this paper is argued that some important ideas were in fact due to Mach, Moore and Whitehead. According to the author, Russell got from Mach the general idea of epistemology as an analysis of scientific concepts and, specially,the idea of sensations as the building blocks for his logical construction. Moore made Russell believe that only sensations are known in a direct way, and so, the existence of external objects as the cause of our perceptions is only inferred. Moreover, according to the author, Russell's views on sense data -his sensibilia- are also due to Moore. Finally, Russell got from Whitehead the idea of the phenomenical reconstruction as an alternative to the causal theory of perception, and also how the logical construction should be done. The author undertakes also a detailed analysis of some early works of Whitehead not very well known.
