The Autobiography of Bertrand Russell Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bertrand Russell was born in 1872 and died in 1970. One of the most influential figures of the 20th century, he transformed philosophy and can lay claim to being one of the greatest philosophers of all time. He was a Nobel Prize winner for Literature and was imprisoned several times as a result of his pacifism. His views on religion, education, sex, politics and many other topics made him one of the most read and revered writers of the age. He also wrote this book, one of the most compelling and vivid autobiographies ever written.

Now available in a single paperback, this edition of Russell's Autobiography includes an introduction by scholar Michael Foot exploring the status of this classic nearly 30 years after the publication of its last volume.

Review:

"Riveting...the detailed expression of a mind of a genius in the making." Jessica Mitford

Review:

"He is frank about himself — his acts, thoughts and emotions — as Pepys or Rousseau, and the book is, therefore, like theirs, an extraordinary psychological revelation." Leonard Woolf
