About the Author:

Bertrand Russell (1872–1970) was one of the most formidable thinkers of the modern era. A philosopher, mathematician, educational innovator, champion of intellectual, social and sexual freedom, and a campaigner for peace and human rights, he was also a prolific writer of popular and influential books, essays and lectures on an extensive range of subjects.

Considered to be one of the most controversial figures of the twentieth century, Bertrand Russell is widely renowned for his provocative writings. These definitive works offer profound insights and forward-thinking perspectives on a changing western society progressively shaped, most significantly, by two world wars, the decline of British imperialism and an evolving moral landscape.

Review:

‘...the cream of the great man’s satire, witty, pungent quotes from a variety of writings.’ – Evening News

‘...pungent quotations that underlie Lord Russell’s views on dogmatic authority as one of the greatest obstacles to human advancement.’ – The Times Educational Supplement
