About this title


Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR AND RARE----------------Dear Bertrand Russell: a Selection of His Correspondence with the General Public 1950-1968, Introduced and Edited by Barry Feinberg and Ronald Kasrils..............Bertrand Arthur William Russell, 3rd Earl Russell OM FRS[55] (/ˈrʌsəl/; 18 May 1872 - 2 February 1970) was a British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, writer, social critic and political activist. At various points in his life he considered himself a liberal, a socialist, and a pacifist, but he also admitted that he had never been any of these in any profound sense. He was born in Monmouthshire into one of the most prominent aristocratic families in Britain. 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 his protégé Ludwig Wittgenstein. He is widely held to be one of the 20th century's premier logicians. With A. N. Whitehead he wrote Principia Mathematica, an attempt to create a logical basis for mathematics. His philosophical essay "On Denoting" has been considered a "paradigm of philosophy".................This is the hardcover stated Houghton First U.S. Edition from 1969. Other than a clipped back cardholder flyleaf (ex lib), both the mylar-covered DJ and the book are in excellent reading condition. There are no rips, tears, etc. and the pages and binding are tight.
