4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Julia McDowell on October 14, 2002
Format: Hardcover
I am very impressed with this book, it allows us a view into Russell's thinking and personal research notes as he struggled with his theories of knowledge and logical atomism.
What is most interesting is to see his thought process 'behind the scenes' of some of his greatest ideas.
It is also good to have his famous essay 'On Denoting' finally available in book form.
For all lovers of this subject and fans of this man's thinking, this book is indispensible.

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By egalitarian ethos on June 23, 2000
Format: Hardcover
World War One was an epoch-making event which transformed the philosophy of Bertrand Russell from based mainly on logic, mathematics and epistemology to haumanitarian issues such as pacificism, freedom and the role of the state. "Collected Papers of Bertrand Russell: Pacifism and Revolution, 1916-18" provides glimpses into this transition and elucidates Russell's main arguments for pacifism and socialism: "No good to the community, of any sort or kind, results from the private ownership of land. If men were reasonable they would decree that it should cease tomorrow..." As private property is protected by the State, and the fraud and plunder that constitute property are sanctioned by legislation and enforced by weapons and war, Russell argued that the State is therefor a great evil and its functions must be taken over by community-based cooperatives and worker's syndicates. Fascinating, provocative and necessary reading.
