6 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Viraga on August 3, 2000
Format: Paperback
The definition of philosophy varies according to the philosophy we adopt, says Russell. So then --- there are some general problems which people find interesting, and which do not belong to any of the special sciences, and these problems raise doubts about what we consider knowledge. The definition and exploration of this problems is philosophy. With this introduction, Russell discusses some problems: the physical world, man from without (environment), man from within (consciousness, emotions, ethics etc) and so on. An outline is clearly limited, and Russell does not include many branches of philosophical enquiry such as metaphysical inquiry and some aspects of authority and state. But within its constraints, the book is still a good read.
