First published in Routledge is an imprint of Taylor amp Francis an informa company, Since its first publication in Lord Russell s i A History of Western Philosophy i has been universally acclaimed as the outstanding one volume work on the subject unparalleled in its comprehensiveness its clarity its erudition its grace and wit In seventy six chapters he traces philosophy from the rise of Greek civilization to the emergence of logical analysis in the twentieth century Among the philosophers considered are Pythagoras Heraclitus Parmenides Empedocles Anaxagoras the Atomists Protagoras Socrates Plato Aristotle the Cynics the Sceptics the Epicureans the Stoics Plotinus Ambrose Jerome Augustine Benedict Gregory the Great John the Scot Aquinas Duns Scotus William of Occam Machiavelli Erasmus More Bacon Hobbes Descartes Spinoza Leibniz Locke Berkeley Hume Rousseau Kant Hegel Schopenhauer Nietzsche the Utilitarians Marx Bergson James Dewey and lastly the philosophers with whom Lord Russell himself is most closely associated Cantor Frege and Whitehead co author with Russell of the monumental i Principia Mathematica i, In the words of Bertrand Russell Because language is misleading as well as because it is diffuse and inexact when applied to logic for which it was never intended logical symbolism is absolutely necessary to any exact or thorough treatment of mathematical philosophy That assertion underlies this book a seminal work in the field for more than years In it Russell offers a nontechnical undogmatic account of his philosophical criticism as it relates to arithmetic and logic Rather than an exhaustive treatment however the influential philosopher and mathematician focuses on certain issues of mathematical logic that to his mind invalidated much traditional and contemporary philosophy br In dealing with such topics as number order relations limits and continuity propositional functions descriptions and classes Russell writes in a clear accessible manner requiring neither a knowledge of mathematics nor an aptitude for mathematical symbolism The result is a thought provoking excursion into the fascinating realm where mathematics and philosophy meet a philosophical classic that will be welcomed by any thinking person interested in this crucial area of modern thought, Along with em Why I Am Not a Christian em this essay must rank as the most articulate example of Russell s famed atheism It is also one of the most notorious Used as evidence in a court case in which Russell was declared unfit to teach college level philosophy em What I Believe em was to become one of his most defining works The ideas contained within were and are controversial contentious and to the religious downright blasphemous A remarkable work it remains the best concise introduction to Russell s thought
