Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"New truth is often uncomfortable," Bertrand Russell wrote, "but it is the most important achievement of our species." In Religion and Science (1961), his popular polemic against religious dogma, he covers the ground from demonology to quantum physics, yet concedes that science cannot touch the profound feelings of personal religious experience.

About the Author

BERTRAND RUSSELL (1872-1970), a UK-born mathematician, philosopher,and Noble Prize-winner, is regarded as the founder of modern logic. Russell conceived with Alfred North Whitehead a mathematical system of logic based on an abstract analysis of thought. His fights for pacifism and conscientious objection lead him to several stints in prison and frequently interfered with his professional career; however, it also lead to the creation with Jean-Paul Sartre of the "International Court" against war crimes.
