Overview

The Problems Of Philosophy by Bertrand Russell

For Russell-one of the twentieth-century's sharpest minds-philosophy should not be studied for the answers it provides but for the questions it poses and the analysis it brings to those questions. Toward this end, he sets out to address some of the most intriguing questions facing those who explore theories of knowledge and reality. During this journey Russell traverses some fascinating territory: appearance and reality, induction, knowledge of general principles, knowledge of universals, intuitive knowledge, truth and falsehood, knowledge and error, and probable opinion.

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.
