<:st> Cited in . Accenting theory of knowledge issues over metaphysics in this classic, Russell's ability to make philosophy accessible clinches his case for students reading great philosophers' works rather than secondary texts.

Meet the Author


Bertrand Russell (1872–1970)—one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century—made noteworthy contributions not just to logic and philosophy, but also to a broad range of other subjects including education, history, political theory and religious studies.  Having been educated privately, he entered Cambridge Trinity College in 1890, where he met Alfred North Whitehead and with him started the ambitious project of reducing mathematics to logic. His early philosophical work (along with that of his pupil Ludwig Wittgenstein) had been mainly analytic and as such was one of the inspirations for the analytic movement in philosophy.

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

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.
