Why I am not a Christian : and other essays on religion and related subjects by Bertrand Russell( Book )

82 editions published between 1957 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dedicated as few men have been to the life of reason, Bertrand Russell has always been concerned with the basic questions to which religion also addresses itselfquestions about mans place in the universe and the nature of the good life, questions that involve life after death, morality, freedom, education, and sexual ethics. He brings to his treatment of these questions the same courage, scrupulous logic, and lofty wisdom for which his other work as philosopher, writer, and teacher has been famous. These qualities make the essays included in this book perhaps the most graceful and moving presentation of the freethinker's position since the days of Hume and Voltaire."--Amazon.com

Heidegger's confusions by Paul Edwards( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this thorough critique of the philosophy of Martin Heidegger, philosopher Paul Edwards continues a project that he began several years ago. Edwards's goal has been "to rescue [Heidegger's] valuable ideas from the logical confusions in which they are embedded and from the willfully obscure and perverse language in which they are frequently expressed" (New York Review of Books, June 11, 1981). In this penetrating and witty book, Edwards insightfully analyzes Heidegger's quest for being; his treatment of death, anxiety, and nothingness; and his double-talk about life after death."--Jacket
God and the philosophers by Paul Edwards( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This exploration of critical views on the nature and existence of God, as expressed by major philosophers of the Western world from the medieval period to the present day, is the last work of internationally recognized philosopher Paul Edwards. Edwards addresses how the concept of God has changed over the centuries, in large part due to the analyses of such skeptical thinkers as David Hume, Thomas Paine, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Bertrand Russell." "A longtime critic of theistic arguments, Edwards demonstrates a masterful understanding of the ways in which the scientific revolution of the seventeenth century, the Enlightenment of the eighteenth century, the evolutionary materialism of the nineteenth century, and the rise of analytic and existentialist philosophies in the twentieth century prepared the way for the growing role of atheism in the twenty-first century." "This work is an idiosyncratic evaluation of the views of dozens of Western thinkers on perennial topics in the philosophy of religion. Though not all of the philosophers discussed were nonbelievers or antireligious, they can be considered to be "freethinkers." They pursued the cause of knowledge wherever their thinking led them, often to iconoclastic positions."--Jacket

5 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

7 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wyndham Lewis, 1882-1957 by Wyndham Lewis( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wyndham Lewis could be described as a "single-handed avant-garde movement". An accomplished artist, Lewis found 'An accomplished ed Vorticism', the only English avant-garde movement, and was the author of more than 50 books. In addition he issued manifestoes, edited and published journals and was responsible for a fascinating and strikingly varied body of work that runs from his vorticist, Cubo-futurist and abstract compositions to his most refined portraits. A pioneer of abstraction, war artist, major portraitist, novelist, essayist, editor andcritic, Wyndham Lewis is one of the key figures in European modernism of the first half of the 20th century.
