Introducing Bertrand Russell (Introducing...)

Introducing Bertrand Russell (Introducing...) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bertrand Russell changed Western thinking forever, undoubtedly one of the founders of modern philosophy, and yet, for much of his life, he considered himself a complete failure.

Introducing Bertrand Russell describes his philosophical arguments clearly and explains why some philosophers now disagree with them. We meet a passionate eccentric, an aristocrat with socialist and pacifist beliefs, prepared to be imprisoned for them. He actively participated in world politics and encouraged protest against unjust governments. His outspoken views on sex, marriage, religion and education scandalized many — and still can.

Synopsis:

Celebrates the life and work of a very extraordinary man: a passionate eccentric, an aristocrat with socialist beliefs, a deeply religious man who hated all organised religion, and an advocate of women's rights who married several times and had numerous affairs.
