The problems of philosophy by Bertrand Russell( Book )

524 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 22 languages and held by 4,986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bertrand Russell was one of the greatest logicians since Aristotle, and one of the most important philosophers of the past two hundred years. The Problems of Philosophy, one of the most popular works in Russell's prolific collection of writings, has become core reading in philosophy. Clear and accessible, this little book is an intelligible and stimulating guide to those problems of philosophy which often mistakenly make the subject seem too lofty and abstruse for the lay mind. Focusing on problems he believes will provoke positive and constructive discussion, Russell steers the reader through his famous 1910 distinction between "knowledge by acquaintance and knowledge by description," and introduces important theories of Descartes, Kant, Hegel, Hume, Locke, Plato, and others to lay the foundation for philosophical inquiry by general readers and scholars alike
Why I am not a Christian : and other essays on religion and related subjects by Bertrand Russell( Book )

The ABC of relativity by Bertrand Russell( Book )

282 editions published between 1925 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 2,926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ask a dozen people to name a genius and the odds are that 'Einstein' will spring to their lips. Ask them the meaning of 'relativity' and few of them will be able to tell you what it is. The basic principles of relativity have not changed since Russell first published his lucid guide for the general reader. The ABC of Relativity is Bertrand Russell's most brilliant work of scientific popularization. With marvelous lucidity he steers the reader who has no knowledge of maths or physics through the subtleties of Einstein's thinking. In easy, assimilable steps, he explains the theories of special and general relativity and describes their practical application to, amongst much else, discoveries about gravitation and the invention of the hydrogen bomb

169 editions published between 1946 and 2013 in 9 languages and held by 2,741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human Knowledge is Bertrand Russell's examination of the relation between individual experience and the general body of scientific knowledge. It presents an examination of the problems of an empiricist epistemology. --From publisher's description

An unabridged, digitally enlarged printing of Principia mathematica
The conquest of happiness by Bertrand Russell( Book )

358 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 18 languages and held by 2,579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Conquest of Happiness is Bertrand Russell's recipe for good living. First published in 1930, it pre-dates the current obsession with self-help by decades. Leading the reader step by step through the causes of unhappiness and the personal choices, compromises and sacrifices that (may) lead to the final, affirmative conclusion of 'The Happy Man', this is popular philosophy, or even self-help, as it should be written
Mysticism and logic by Bertrand Russell( Book )

245 editions published between 1898 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 2,567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As an analytical philosopher, Russell's work focuses on the use of logic and science to explore philosophical ideas. And, conversely, he uses philosophy to study scientific systems and scientific inquiry. He opens the book with 'Mysticism and logic, ' a discussion of the two major impulses in human and philosophical thought. Here he makes his case for the importance and fundamental necessity for his brand of philosophy. These essays are technical in nature, but students in philosophy and dedicated readers will receive a wealth of knowledge for their efforts"--Jacket flap
Our knowledge of the external world by Bertrand Russell( Book )

204 editions published between 1914 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 2,483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Synopsis: Bertrand Russell's Our Knowledge of the External World investigates the problem of perception from an analytic-philosophical perspective. Here the great British mathematician and philosopher gives a thoughtful exposition of his logically motivated epistemology and argues for a controversial solution to a long-standing philosophical riddle. Skillfully written with an accessible lucidity by a brilliant scholar, it requires of the reader neither prior knowledge of logic nor aptitude for philosophical inquiry. The book serves as essential reading for anyone interested in the intersection of logic and epistemology including the development of analytic philosophy in the twentieth century

208 editions published between 1940 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 2,454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These lectures formed the basis for seminar courses at the University of Chicago in 1938-40."--Pref
Marriage and morals by Bertrand Russell( Book )

Religion and science by Bertrand Russell( Book )

179 editions published between 1935 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 2,325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this timely work, Russell, philosopher, agnostic, mathematician, and renowned peace advocate, offers a brief yet insightful study of the conflicts between science and traditional religion during the last four centuries. Examining accounts in which scientific advances clashed with Christian doctrine or biblical interpretations of the day, from Galileo and the Copernican Revolution, to the medical breakthroughs of anesthesia and inoculation, Russell points to the constant upheaval and reevaluation of our systems of belief throughout history. In turn, he identifies where similar debates between modern science and the Church still exist today. Michael Ruse's new introduction brings these conflicts between science and theology up to date, focusing on issues arising after World War II

200 editions published between 1948 and 2012 in 12 languages and held by 2,280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first of his famous BBC Reith lectures in which Russell examines Ancient Greek philosophy, the French Revolution and the modern welfare state with characteristic clarity and deep understanding. This is Russell at his intellectual best
Power, a new social analysis by Bertrand Russell( Book )

222 editions published between 1938 and 2013 in 12 languages and held by 2,222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The key to human nature that Marx found in wealth and Freud in sex, Bertrand Russell finds in power. Power, he argues, is man's ultimate goal, and is in its many guises the single most important element in the development of any society. Written in the late 1930s when Europe was being torn apart by extremist ideologies and the world was on the brink of war, Russell set out to found a 'new science', one which would make sense of the traumatic events of the day and offer an explanation for those that would follow." "The result was Power, a remarkable book which Russell regarded as one of the most important of his long career. Countering the totalitarian desire to dominate, Russell shows how political enlightenment and human understanding can lead to peace - his book is a passionate call for independence of mind and a celebration of the instinctive joy of human life."--Jacket

Principles of mathematics by Bertrand Russell( Book )

230 editions published between 1903 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 2,110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pure Mathematics is the class of all propositions of the form p implies q, where p and q are propositions containing one or more variables, the same in the two propositions, and neither p nor q contains any constants except logical constants. And logical constants are all notions definable in terms of the following: Implication, the relation of a term to a class of which it is a member, the notion of such that, the notion of relation, and such further notions as may be involved in the general notion of propositions of the above form. In addition to these, mathematics uses a notion which is not a constituent of the propositions which it considers, namely the notion of truth
The analysis of mind by Bertrand Russell( Book )

215 editions published between 1919 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book has grown out of an attempt to harmonize two different tendencies, one in psychology, the other in physics, with both of which I find myself in sympathy, although at first sight they might seem inconsistent. On the one hand, many psychologists, especially those of the behaviourist school, tend to adopt what is essentially a materialistic position, as a matter of method if not of metaphysics. They make psychology increasingly dependent on physiology and external observation, and tend to think of matter as something much more solid and indubitable than mind. Meanwhile the physicists, especially Einstein and other exponents of the theory of relativity, have been making "matter" less and less material. Their world consists of "events," from which "matter" is derived by a logical construction. I think that what has permanent value in the outlook of the behaviourists is the feeling that physics is the most fundamental science at present in existence. But this position cannot be called materialistic, if, as seems to be the case, physics does not assume the existence of matter."--
Proposed roads to freedom; socialism, anarchism and syndicalism by Bertrand Russell( Book )

48 editions published between 1918 and 2014 in English and Japanese and held by 892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bertrand Russell's critical accounts of Socialism, Anarchism, and Syndicalism are well worth careful reading. He knows his subject and sees with clear vision the defects in these ""Proposed Roads to Freedom.""
