Minerva's aviary : philosophy at Toronto, 1843-2003 by John G Slater( )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in English and held by 1,256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophy has been taught at the University of Toronto, and its predecessor King's College, since 1843. While much has changed in that time, the university's Department of Philosophy remains one of Canada's preeminent institutions for philosophical instruction. In Minerva's Aviary, John G. Slater documents the history of Toronto's Philosophy Department from its founding to contemporary times. In the early years, the teaching of philosophy at the university was an appendage to courses in religion. As time passed however, the discipline grew into the independent, largely secular subject it is today. The story of how this happened is told in terms of the people who taught in the department.

A bibliography of Bertrand Russell by Kenneth Blackwell( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 1895, the year he published his first signed article, to four days before his death in 1970 when he wrote his last, Bertrand Russell was a powerful force in the world of mathematics, philosophy, human rights and the struggle for peace. During those years he published 70 books, almost as many pamphlets and over 2,000 articles, he also contributed pieces to some 200 books. The availability of the Bertrand Russell Archives at McMaster University since 1968 has made it possible for the first time to compile a full, descriptive bibliography of his writings. The Collected Papers are based on it. Fully annotated, the Bibliography is textually oriented and will guide the scholar, collector and general reader to the authoritative editions of Russell's works. It includes references to the locations of all known speeches and interviews, and reproductions of the dust-jackets of Russell's books. Blackwell, Ruja and Turcon have cooperated for nearly 20 years on the new Bibliography. Lord Russell saw the extensive additions for it near the end of his life and declared: I am impressed

Mortals and others : Bertrand Russell's American essays, 1931-1935 by Bertrand Russell( )

5 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From 1931 to 1935 Bertrand Russell was one of the regular contributors to the literary pages of the New York American, together with other distinguished authors such as Aldous Huxley and Vita Sackville-West. Mortals and Others presents a selection of his essays, ranging from the politically correct to the perfectly obscure: from Is the World Going Mad? to Should Socialists Smoke Good Cigars?" "Even though written in the politically heated climate of the 1930s, these essays are surprisingly topical and engaging for the present-day reader. Mortals and Others serves as a splendid, fresh introduction to the compassionate eclecticism of Bertrand Russell's mind."--Jacket
