Produktbeschreibung
This book is a collection of Russell's lectures during the early phase of WW1. These works cover different aspect of human life such as state, religion, education, marriage to name some, by going through these lectures one got to understand the real mind set of this thinker par excellence ; the jest of this work is the preaching of humanity both in collective and in individual sense. Thru these pages we see a person who want person/society to thrive on its natural creative instincts, an atmosphere where there is only compassion and benevolence where there will be no fear of state authority in a negative way where children will not strait jacketed to think in some particular way and where term patriotism is not confined to one's own country/tribe/community but also to understand the feeling of other people towards their country and community. Writing style is reader friendly and narration is easy on mind the content is quiet easily communicated to the recipient which is not an easy task specially if the subject is philosophy here Russell has proved his mastery of words and communication skills. One thing is quiet interesting and that is the misjudgment on the part of Russell regarding the role of USA in the world war, he predicted that America will not go to war because it has no external danger; well two years after the delivery of this lecture USA did enter the war on the side of Britain and France this proves that mistakes could be incurred by the even the brightest of minds. this book is a must read for all the thinking minds with an intent to make this world a better place (Saad Din)
Autorenporträt
Bertrand Arthur William Russell, 3rd Earl Russell, (18 May 1872 - 2 February 1970) was a British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, writer, essayist, social critic, political activist, and Nobel laureate. At various points in his life, Russell considered himself a liberal, a socialist and a pacifist, although he also confessed that his sceptical nature had led him to feel that he had "never been any of these things, in any profound sense. Russell was born in Monmouthshire into one of the most prominent aristocratic families in the United Kingdom In the early 20th century, Russell led the British "revolt against idealism" He is considered one of the founders of analytic philosophy along with his predecessor Gottlob Frege, colleague G. E. Moore and protégé Ludwig Wittgenstein. He is widely held to be one of the 20th century's premier logicians.[67] With A. N. Whitehead he wrote Principia Mathematica, an attempt to create a logical basis for mathematics, the quintessential work of classical logic. His philosophical essay "On Denoting" has been considered a "paradigm of philosophy".[71] His work has had a considerable influence on mathematics, logic, set theory, linguistics, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science (see type theory and type system) and philosophy, especially the philosophy of language, epistemology and metaphysics. Russell was a prominent anti-war activist and he championed anti-imperialism. Occasionally, he advocated preventive nuclear war, before the opportunity provided by the atomic monopoly had passed and he decided he would "welcome with enthusiasm" world government.[74] He went to prison for his pacifism during World War I. Later, Russell concluded that war against Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany was a necessary "lesser of two evils" and criticised Stalinist totalitarianism, attacked the involvement of the United States in the Vietnam War and was an outspoken proponent of nuclear disarmament. In 1950, Russell was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his varied and significant writings in which he champions humanitarian ideals and freedom of thought"
