The Problems of Philosophy [NOOK Book]

Overview

In the following pages I have confined myself in the main to those problems of philosophy in regard to which I thought it possible to say something positive and constructive, since merely negative criticism seemed out of place. For this reason, theory of knowledge occupies a larger space than metaphysics in the present volume, and some topics much discussed by philosophers are treated very briefly, if at all.

Overview

In the following pages I have confined myself in the main to those problems of philosophy in regard to which I thought it possible to say something positive and constructive, since merely negative criticism seemed out of place. For this reason, theory of knowledge occupies a larger space than metaphysics in the present volume, and some topics much discussed by philosophers are treated very briefly, if at all.
I have derived valuable assistance from unpublished writings of G. E. Moore and J. M. Keynes: from the former, as regards the relations of sense-data to physical objects, and from the latter as regards probability and induction. I have also profited greatly by the criticisms and suggestions of Professor Gilbert Murray.

    A thought-provoking book

    One of my favorite books by Russell! A very straight-forward introduction to philosophical issues as Russell saw them.

    Terrific beginning to any study beyond what we know, or what we think we know

    This book is generally difficult but simple in relation to most other books of the philosophical kind. Russell works diligently and successfully in a mind-boggling field to simplify the matters at hand. The personal outcome is a renewed and refreshed knowledge and view of the world.
