Publisher's Summary

Bertrand Russell and A.N. Whitehead co-authored a seminal work in logic entitled Principia Mathematica. Russell wrote on virtually every aspect of philosophy, with particular contributions in ethics (where he championed important innovations). Whitehead developed one of the great philosophical systems of the century, attempting to harmonize science and values and to reconcile religion and philosophy.

The World of Philosophy series is a dramatic presentation, in understandable language, of the concerns, questions, interests, and overall outlook of the world's great philosophers and philosophical traditions. Special emphasis on clear and relevant explanations gives you a new arsenal of insights toward living a better life.

Don't miss other titles in the World of Philosophy series.

    Story
    "Good book"
    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What about Lynn Redgrave’s performance did you like?

    Clear, pleasant, well suited to the British academics who are the subjects of the book.

    Story
    "Res est... ergo sum.??"

    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.
