The Quotable Bertrand Russell

Renowned mathematician, philosopher, and humanist Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) wrote and spoke extensively on a broad range of topics. He left behind a record of over eighty books, countless magazine and newspaper articles, and many television and radio interviews. A staunch opponent of increasing militarization, the proliferation of nuclear weapons, and the U.S. role in Vietnam, Russell is considered by many to be the most influential social critic and political activist of the twentieth century.In 1950, Russell received the Nobel Prize for Literature in recognition of those writings meant for "ordinary citizens." As the Nobel Committee aptly put it: "Russell has so extensively addressed his books to a public of laymen, and, in so doing, has been eminently successful in keeping alive an interest in general philosophy. His whole life's work is a stimulating defense of the reality of common sense."In The Quotable Bertrand Russell, Lee Eisler has combed the whole of Russell's work to gather his comments and reactions to important social issues, political questions, and heated debates on morals and religion. Russell's views - iconoclastic, humorous, but always enlightening - are formulated as answers to specific questions. Organized alphabetically by topic for ease of reference, it's provocative, it's exciting, it's the very best of Russell.The Quotable Bertrand Russell is indeed, "Russell for Everyman" and woman.
