Purchase options and add-ons
The fireworks fly when the great Bertrand Russell writes about a subject as provocative as marriage and morals. But they are a rational and devastatingly logical kind of fireworks . . . for that was the nature of the man.Russell's approach to sex and love is based on the realities of need and desire, rather than on ancient tribal and religious taboos. Marriage and Morals is a clear, unbiased look at morality, a morality that is simply one aspect of Russell's lifelong opposition to restrictive dogma and an affirmation of his unshakeable faith in the adequacy of man and the power of human intellect.
"Sufficient dynamite to blast a carload of ordinary sex popularizers from the face of the earth . . . deals most competently and completely with practically every ramification of sex and sex life and occurs in modern sociology and psychology." ―New York Post
"Fundamental and clear, unbiased and persuasive. Russell writes as a humanist, defending the happiness of man against many moral prejudices, advocates his changes lucidly and wittily." ―Time

BUT - once I continued reading, this book struck me many times with the need to quote it. It carries profound messages, some that resonate loudly today. The world needs more Bertrands, we need more people critically thinking, more people inquiring.
If you venture to read this book, I do not think you will be disappointed, it's very insightful, open-minded, and makes very profound claims which are very rational. It's a breath of fresh air compared to all of the dogmatic, ignorant and closed-mindedness that we're confronted with today.
