Author:

Vero e proprio capolavoro di sintesi e di chiarezza espositiva, la Storia della filosofia occidentale si offre come un quadro completo dello sviluppo del pensiero filosofico, all’interno del quale i singoli pensatori sono collocati nel loro contesto storico e sociale a dimostrazione che l’opera di un filosofo non sorge mai isolata, bensì riflette ed elabora i pensieri e i sentimenti che sono comuni alla società di cui fa parte. L’opera di Russell, priva di difficoltà terminologiche e disquisizioni tecniche, rappresenta uno dei migliori e più conosciuti esempi di divulgazione filosofica.

Author:

According to Bertrand Russell, science is knowledge; that which seeks general laws connecting a number of particular facts. It is, he argues, far superior to art, where much of the knowledge is intangible and assumed. In Russell delivers one of his most important works, exploring the nature and scope of scientific knowledge, the increased power over nature that science affords and the changes in the lives of human beings that result from new forms of science. Insightful and accessible, this impressive work sees Russell at his very best.

Author:

The Conquest of Happiness is Bertrand Russell's recipe for good living. First published in 1930, it pre-­dates the current obsession with self-­help by decades. Leading the reader step by step through the causes of unhappiness and the personal choices, compromises and sacrifices that (may) lead to the final, affirmative conclusion of 'The Happy Man', this is popular philosophy, or even self-­help, as it should be written.

Das "Lexikon Linker Leitfiguren" schließt den Artikel über Bertrand Russell mit der Feststellung: "Die Linke in der Bundesrepublik hat es sich wohl zu leicht mit ihm gemacht: Als Mitstreiter gegen den Rüstungswettlauf und die atomare Bedrohung, als Ankläger gegen die amerikanische Kriegsführung in Vietnam und als Vordenker antiautoritärer Erziehung war er in ihren Reihen willkommen. Sein philosophisches Werk und der Geist seiner Kritik blieben aber aus dem theoretischen Diskurs der Linken ausgeschlossen ... Er sollte für die Linke eine Provokation bleiben: als radikaler Aufklärer.­"In "Unpopuläre Betrachtungen" stellte Russell 1950 Essays zusammen, die "gegen den zunehmenden Dogmatismus der Rechten wie der Linken, der unserem tragischen Jahrhundert bisher seinen Stempel aufgedrückt hat, ankämpfen". Sie zeigen ihn als eben jenen radikalen Aufklärer; denn "wirkliche Philosophie handelt von Dingen, die für jeden Gebildeten von Interesse sind", unter anderem: Philosophie und Politik, . . .

Bertrand Russell was born in 1872 and died in 1970. One of the most influential figures of the twentieth 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. This, his autobiography, is one of the most compelling and vivid ever written. This one-­volume, compact paperback edition contains an introduction by the politician and scholar, Michael Foot, which explores the status of this classic nearly 30 years after the publication of the final volume.

First published in 1946, History of Western Philosophy went on to become the best-­selling philosophy book of the twentieth century. A dazzlingly ambitious project, it remains unchallenged to this day as the ultimate introduction to Western philosophy. Providing a sophisticated overview of the ideas that have perplexed people from time immemorial, it is 'long on wit, intelligence and curmudgeonly scepticism', as the New York Times noted, and it is this, coupled with the sheer brilliance of its scholarship, that has made Russell's History of Western Philosophy one of the most important philosophical works of all time.
