Past Masters is a series of concise, lucid, authoritative introducitons to the thought of leading intellectual figures of the past whose ideas still influence the way we think today.
Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) is one of the most famous and important philosophers of the twentieth century. In this highly accessible account of his life and work A.C. Grayling introduces both his technical contributions to logic and philosophy, and his wide-ranging views on education, politics, war, and sexual morality. Russell is credited with being one of the prime movers of Analytic Philosophy, and with having played a part in the revolution in social attitudes witnessed throughout the twentieth-century world. With clarity and brevity, this introduction gives a clear survey of the entire range of Russell's achievements.
