[[ Kindle ]] ☠ Bertrand Russell: Philosophy in an Hour ☆ Popular Books, Bertrand Russell Philosophy In An Hour By Paul Strathern This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Bertrand Russell Philosophy In An Hour, Essay By Paul Strathern Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You This ebook sat on my ipad as my bedside reading for a couple of nights And it is fun to read about Russell This explains a lot of his tendencies and his writing which, if titles are seen on a library shelf, might seem completely random and unrelated He has, after all, written the Principia Mathematica which hardly anyone can understand and the Problems of Philosophy which almost anyone can understand and everything in the middle His writings are part sophisticated and original and part pop philosophy and he wrote about a wide range of issues that, despite having some constant threads among them, can seem separated and incoherent It is largely explained by Russell s long life but so by a significant fact, HE WAS HUMAN indeed human than many of us can think of a philosopher being After all, the philosophers of old we only understand in rigid writings and marble busts in museums this one is a live, have been on television and radio, ran a school, marched in protests, went to an actual modern day prison, fell prey to his desires, and did a lot of things we all do.Having read some of Russell s work Proposed roads to freedom, marriage and morals, a history of Western philosophy, and a couple , what gives me comfort in this small volume is knowing that he was a person of principles who broke his principles regularly, he was against marriage in principle and got married twice three times not sure any and other things like that Looking at Russell s life, and ignoring that he as a white descendent of English nobility is hardly a representative of the regular person, it is comforting to know that we are neither weaker nor fallible than one of the greatest philosophers of the past century.

On the Wittgenstein episode so was it a rhinoceros or a hippopotamus then From the point of view of a novice to Russel s philosophy I felt like it was a good introduction. Some info in Russel s biography, and very little on his philosophy They weren t kidding about the hour though.
