Synopsis: The Problems of Philosophy by Bertrand Russell is an excellent foray into the world of philosophy, enjoyable even for the novice. Russell presents philosophy as endlessly intriguing subject, one which causes you to consider things you may have never thought of before. While containing no easy answers, The Problems of Philosophy poses a myriad of questions which can force one to doubt, and even reexamine, one's beliefs--even those which previously seemed so resolute. Russell guides the reader through his famous 1910 distinction between "knowledge by acquaintance and knowledge by description" and introduces important theories of Plato, Aristotle, René Descartes, David Hume, John Locke, Immanuel Kant, G. W. F. Hegel and others to lay the foundation for philosophical inquiry by general readers and scholars alike. Written in a lucid, unpretentious manner, The Problems of Philosophy is a great book for those who wish to gain a better understanding of themselves and their surroundings. Exceptional in its quality, The Problems of Philosophy is an excellent choice to get you started on the journey towards the ever elusive Truth.
About the Author: Bertrand Arthur William Russell (1872–1970), was a British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, pacifist, and social critic.He spent most of his life in England; he was born in Wales where he also died, aged 97. Russell led the British "revolt against idealism" in the early 1900s. He is considered one of the founders of analytic philosophy along with his predecessor Gottlob Frege and his protégé Ludwig Wittgenstein, and is widely held to be one of the 20th century's premier logicians. He co-authored, with A. N. Whitehead, Principia Mathematica, an attempt to ground mathematics on logic. His philosophical essay "On Denoting" has been considered a "paradigm of philosophy." His work has had a considerable influence on logic, mathematics, set theory, linguistics, and philosophy, especially philosophy of language, epistemology, and metaphysics. Russell was a prominent anti-war activist; he championed free trade and anti-imperialism. Russell went to prison for his pacifist activism during World War I. Later, he campaigned against Adolf Hitler, then criticised Stalinist totalitarianism, attacked the United States of America's involvement in the Vietnam War, and finally became an outspoken proponent of nuclear disarmament. In 1950, Russell was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, "in recognition of his varied and significant writings in which he champions humanitarian ideals and freedom of thought."
