Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970). Philosopher, mathematician, educational and sexual reformer, pacifist, prolific letter writer, author and columnist, Bertrand Russell was one of the most influential and widely known intellectual figures of the twentieth century. In 1950 he was awarded the Noble Prize for Literature in 1950 for his extensive contributions to world literature and for his "rationality and humanity, as a fearless champion of free speech and free thought in the West."

4.0 out of 5 stars Russell's prose is absolutely perfect for introducing the reader to this hugely interesting subject
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 26, 2018
A classic book in philosophy. Written I think in 1912, but still a valuable read. Russell's prose is absolutely perfect for introducing the reader to this hugely interesting subject. He takes you through many of philosophy's problems step by step and you certainly feel that you are getting to know what this subject entails even from the very first page. The book is also short and and can be read within a few hours, in perhaps one or two readings. This is probably one of the reasons why this book has been such a popular text. For me this book was an introduction to Russell's vastly superior work: A History of Western Philosophy.

I hope you find my review helpful.
