I was looking for some short books on the founders of the Analytic tradition in philosophy, and this was helpful to me. Nice short interwoven biographies of these two philosophers with notes on their work and how it fit into the times and the progression of Western thought. I agree with another reviewer that Russell got more coverage but not overwhelmingly so. It was a nice mix.
Clear, pleasant, well suited to the British academics who are the subjects of the book.
History and photography are my strengths. Preparing my son for college is my current avocation.
Audible is wonderful for those of us who are getting older and our vision is not what is used to be. I especially enjoy Audible because I can listen and without interference. It is easy to put a book down and do something else, however while listening to books I read fifty years ago I can do other things.
Physics and meta physics , spirituality and pragmatism embrace and contend in the historic friendship of these authors of Principia Mathematica... a meta classical opus... cosmological , yet introspective; assuming philosophical perspective, but
allowing for naivety.. Light reading... not.
