"Essas proposições podem parecer moderadas; no entanto, se aceitas, revolucionariam de modo absoluto a vida humana.­" Com essas palavras Bertrand Russell introduz este livro verdadeiramente ousado. Para ele – que foi, junto a Sartre, o maior filósofo do século XX –, não era uma contradição se declarar cético e ao mesmo tempo acreditar que a razão pudesse transformar a vida humana. O resultado é esta coletânea de ensaios, a maioria dos quais escritos nos anos 1920, sobre assuntos que continuam no furacão das polêmicas: o perigo das guerras doutrinárias, a busca pela felicidade, a questão liberdade versus autoridade na educação, entre outros. Neste conjunto de textos que o filósofo John Gray afirma serem "alguns dos mais bonitos e interessantes ensaios escritos da língua inglesa", Russell aponta uma luz no fim do túnel: a inteligência como único remédio capaz de sanar as doenças de que o mundo sofre.

En este ensayo Sobre educación, Russell parte de la idea de que la educación que deseamos para nuestros hijos depende de nuestros ideales acerca del ser humano. Ataca así el sistema educativo de la época, en manos de la Iglesia o del Estado, a los que acusa de crear rebaños formando en el conformismo, el autoritarismo y el nacionalismo. Russell busca educar personalidades libres y sensibles, cultivadas en la curiosidad, la confianza en el esfuerzo y el sentido de aventura. Él y su mujer Dora crearon una escuela en Beacon Hill en donde intentaron llevar a la práctica sus ideales educativos. El valor actual de estos ensayos reside en lo pausado y racional de su análisis, en la claridad de sus propuestas y la amenidad de su lectura: Cuanto he de decir -­escribe Russell- No es sino el resultado de mis preocupaciones con respecto a mis hijos; no hay, pues, en ello nada de remoto ni teórico, y espero que ayudará a otros padres a aclarar ideas, bien sea para compartir o para rechazar mis . . .

First published in 1989, this book considers Bertrand Russell's philosophy through his correspondence with others. Indeed, his exchanges with his elders in philosophy, with his contemporaries, and with one of his most outstanding pupils are brought to life in this judicious exposition: meticulously documented before being judged with insight and sympathy, as well as impartiality. Elizabeth Ramsden Eames here explores the issues that emerged from Russell's exchanges with certain other philosophers, and interprets the resulting reciprocal influences and reactions. The conversations presented cover subjects such as: the nature of relations; pluralism versus monism; the relation of the subject and object in knowledge; the analysis of experience; the definition of truth; the analysis of belief; and the theory of meaning. These have been in the forefront of philosophical discussion in our time, and Russell's dialogue with his contemporaries promises to illumine them.

Nada é sagrado. Sexo, moral, política, sociedade – todo assunto é páreo para o gênio ácido e a mente lúcida de Bertrand Russell (1872-­1970), o filósofo mais expressivo e engajado do século XX, ao lado de Sartre. Em No que acredito, publicado em 1925, ele reflete sobre o papel e a influência da religião na vida das pessoas. Trata-­se de um livro emblemático do seu célebre e articulado ateísmo, além de ser um dos seus textos mais difundidos. As idéias desse ensaio eram – e ainda são – ousadas, controversas e, para os religiosos, extremamente blasfemas. Um trabalho notável, espirituoso e deliciosamente escrito, que é a melhor porta de entrada para a obra e o pensamento deste incomparável matemático e humanista. Com a mesma força com que repudia a fé religiosa, Russell acredita no ser humano, acima de todas as coisas.

Bertrand Russell's The Conquest of Happiness is a guide on living a happy life. Although it was of its time it was also ahead of its time. Russell believed that true happiness could only be achieved through thought and effort. A true self help classic before self help even existed. Our interpretation of The Conquest of Happiness illustrates the timeless nature of Russell's insights by bringing them to life through over 50 modern case studies. This brilliant interpretation of The Conquest of Happiness is an entertaining accompaniment to one of the most famous books on popular philosophy ever written.

"MYSTICISM AND LOGIC AND OTHER ESSAYS"  - Popular Classic Novels included NEW illustrations, Clickable Table of Contents for both the list of included books and their respective chapters.­The text and chapters are perfectly set up to match the layout and feel of a physical copy, rather than being haphazardly thrown together for a quick release. Bertrand Arthur William Russell, 3rd Earl Russell, OM, FRS[1] (18 May 1872 – 2 February 1970) was a British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, and social critic. At various points in his life he considered himself a liberal, a socialist, and a pacifist, but he also admitted that he had never been any of these in any profound sense. He was born in Monmouthshire, into one of the most prominent aristocratic families in Britain. Russell led the British "revolt against idealism" in the early 20th century. He is considered one of the founders of analytic philosophy along with his predecessor Gottlob Frege and his protégé Ludwig . . .

Although there has been a significant revival in interest in Bertrand Russell's work in recent years, most professional philosophers would still argue that Russell was not interested in language. Here, in the first full-­length study of Russell's work on language throughout his long career, Keith Green shows that this is in fact not the case.­��In examining Russell's��work, particularly from 1900 to 1950, Green exposes��a repeated emphasis on, and turn to, linguistic considerations. Green considers how 'linguistics' and 'philosophy' were struggling in the twentieth century to define themselves and to create appropriate contemporary disciplines. They had much in common during certain periods, yet seemed to continue in almost total ignorance of one another. This negative relation has been noted in the past by Roy Harris, whose work provides some of the inspiration for the present book. Taking those two aspects, Green's aim��here is to provide the first full-­length consideration of . . .

'Is there any knowledge in the world which is so certain that no reasonable man could doubt it?­' Philosophy is the attempt to answer such ultimate questions, not carelessly and dogmatically, as we might deal with them in ordinary life, but critically, after analysing how and why the questions arise and clarifying the assumptions and concepts on which they are based. This classic work, first published in 1912, has never been supplanted as an approachable introduction to the theory of philosophical enquiry. It gives Russell's views on such subjects as the distinction between appearance and reality, the existence and nature of matter, idealism, knowledge by acquaintance and by description, induction, and the limits and value of philosophical knowledge. This edition includes an introduction by John Skorupski contextualizing Russell's work, and a guide to further reading.

A contradictory sort of fellow - Will Durant, in his congenial The Story of Philosophy, describes Bertrand Russell as ...­resolved to be hard-­headed because he knows he can not be. This is a bit unfair, as it doesnt really take into account Russells philosophy, merely the man. But the two are so hard to separate! Basically, Russell believes that mysticism is the inspirer of what is best in man. But that it is absolutely muddle-­headed and has lead mankind down numerous philosophic blind alleys in the past thousand or so years. He was a mathematical genius, wrote prose that could cut like a razor blade concerning the most abstruse subjects in a manner understandable to most laymen, and was a profound skeptic in re matters religious. This latter got him into all kinds of trouble with womens societies and the like back in the earlier part of the century and actually got him fired from the City College of New York. So he packed his bags and went to teach at Harvard. You see, he was a . . .

Russell explained in depth the power balance in China among British, French, Russia, US, Germany, and Japan in the late 19th century and early 20th century. As a peace lover, Russell disgusted at the Japanese invasion and control in China. He was able to explain the root cause of the Japanese aggression using the Race, Culture, Religion, and Industry development factors. As he stated the Chinese culture could not incubate aggression as contrary to the Japanese culture. Since the Far East culture root is deep and usually carries along for centuries, I believe his view still holds true in the 21st century. This book also explained the possibility of a Red China in 1922. Because Russia was a traditional enemy of Japan in the Far East, Russell thought Russia would have a huge impact on Young China because ones enemys enemy is usually a friend. I was so much impressed by Russells social analysis and insightful thought on China. I wish he were still alive today so he could educate the . . .

Einleitung Bertrand Russell wurde am 18. Mai 1872 in Ravencroft in Wales geboren. Schon 2 Jahre nach seiner Geburt sterben seine Schwester und seine Mutter, wiederum 2 Jahre später stirbt zudem sein Vater. Russell wächst ab diesem Zeitpunkt zusammen mit seinem Bruder bei den Großeltern auf. Sein Großvater, Lord John Russell, ehemaliger Premierminister Großbritanniens, stirbt wiederum zwei Jahre später 1878. Im Alter von 6 Jahren hatte der junge Bertrand schon 4 enge Familienmitglieder verloren. Seine wissenschaftliche Karriere beginnt er mit 18 Jahren am Trinity College in Cambridge. Er beschäftigt sich allerdings schon im Alter von 15 Jahren mit der Philosophie, vor allem mit religionsphilosophischen Fragen im Hinblick auf die Existenz Gottes und die des freien Willens, sowie mit Fragen bezüglich den Grundlagen der Mathematik. Ab 1890 beginnt er Mathematik und Philosophie am Trinity College zu studieren. Während er sich bis 1894 vornehmlich mit Mathematik beschäftigte, wandte er . . .

Formally this book doesnt contain groundbreaking insights, or better: it doesnt say anything that isnt already under your eyes. Its biggest accomplishment, however, is in the very act of showing how sometimes we dont see whats under our eyes for a sort of mental laziness. Russell forces us to move away from this laziness and reconsider what we take for granted about ourselves, and does so with his enjoyable style. He seems to possess the rare skill of finding the minimum amount of words and concepts needed to explain (and solve) the problem clearly and accurately. He will never forget to define precisely all the terms needed in the discussion, or to question the limits of the premises in order to understand the scope of the conclusion. In each chapter he considers a facet of what we call mind and explores it both from the point of introspection and of external analysis of observable behavior. Introspection gives use informations impossible to obtain with other methods, and it is . . .

Philosopher Bertrand Arthur William Russell (1872-­1970) lived almost an entire century, a century full of change. He was one of the few who dared to provide answers to the impossible questions of twentieth century world politics. Several historians have analyzed his attitude towards war, but seldom did they agree on why Russell felt a certain way about war and what caused his often radical attitude. Also, many questions remained unanswered: why did he object to the First World War and supported the Second? And did he really advocate a preventive war against Russia? This book explains the background, motivations and passions behind Russell's sometimes seemingly controversial attitude towards the First World War, the Second World War and the Cold War. By analyzing the consistencies and changes in his thought between 1914 and 1970, the story of twentieth century struggles are relived through the eyes of this invincible rationalist from the nineteenth century.
