Zhuangzi Basic Writings This is a very different book than the Lao Tzu It s written in a much less poetic style, but I find Zhuangzi readable for that reason The style is conversational, and well rendered into contemporary English by Burton Watson.

    1 thought on “The Basic Writings of Bertrand Russell (Routledge Classics)”

    1. A+Awesome collection of Bertrand Russell's essays, showcasing his incredible diversity of thought and interests. Political philosophy, economics, international diplomacy, science, history of philosophy, morality, religion and spirituality, mathematics, logic, etc etc, all of these are showcased in this collection. I'd only read an essay of his here an essay of his there before, so this was a wonderful deep dive into his works.Obviously in a collection of essays there will be some that are better [...]

    2. Bertrand Russell was undoubtedly one of the greatest minds of the 20th century. It is a shame that his is not a household name, nor nearly as readily recognizable to the average layman as are those numerous lesser thinkers like Freud. That is an oversight, however, that is still correctable, at this short distance in time from the end of Russell's remarkable life. And this book, a sort of "best of" of Russell's long career, is a wonderful place to begin that corrective.Herein are some of Russell [...]

    3. Bertrand Russell is perhaps my favourite thinker and writer of all time. Funny, erudite, brief, honest, so very knowledgeable, so very reasonable, and inquisitive about all the right stuff. You can follow him more or less in this book up from the foundations - logic and maths, philosophy, ethics, education and finally (sadly, but nobly) politics. Some people say beware of Russell's writings - especially the History of Western Philosophy - they're full of bias. Well I feel all the richer for seei [...]

    4. Aristotle, in spite of his reputation, is full of absurdities. He says that children should be conceived in the Winter, when the wind is in the North, and that if people marry too young the children will be female. He tells us that the blood of females is blacker then that of males; that the pig is the only animal liable to measles; that an elephant suffering from insomnia should have its shoulders rubbed with salt, olive-oil, and warm water; that women have fewer teeth than men, and so on. Neve [...]

    5. The mathematician who wins the Nobel Prize in literature. His writing is unique. He's the Hemingway of prose; keeps it simple, logical, and with the purpose of education for those not interested in wordy philosophical wind. Easy reading, frequently enlightening, and often very sly and witty. This collection is topically separated, and 800 pages long. Fun for casually picking through like a magazine. I prefer whole, unabridged books, but it's nice to have a giant paperweight/doorstop/boat anchor/ [...]

    7. I haven't read it all, it's more like a good reference and quotes source when you are looking for a smart and reasonable way of looking into our biggest issues. Bertrand Russell was certainly one of the greatest minds of the last century.

    8. while i did not get into "logic" or "principia mathematica", i loved everything in this book. it's a big book and a heavy read but it's broken down in sections which makes it easier to read over a long period of time.

    9. Many of the sections were not as long as I would have liked, but as an lifelong overview of the author's work/thought, in the author's own words, it is perfect.

    10. Amazing collection of essays and nice introduction to the work of Bertrand Russell, one of my greatest heroes.

    11. I enjoyed reading some of Russell's essays. He wrote in an understandable language though his thinking is at a great depth of reasoning.

    12. If for no other reason, one should read Russell to learn how to write with immense wit and enjoyment without abandoning depth of thought: a must-read for all aspiring writers.

    13. Great anthology, except my edition has no index which makes it less useful than it would otherwise be for research.

    14. Russell, as a free thinker revolutionized modern philosophy. Using logic and reason rather than faith and dogma, in all his arguments he strips away the idea of faith.

    15. I am not qualified to comment authoritatively on this collection besides stating that I greatly admire Russell's intellect, reason, and deep humanism. I came to Russell originally through his thoughts on religion, and I still enjoyed those parts most in addition to his political insights. There was a time when, despite not particularly caring for them, I would have tenaciously delved into the matters he broaches on language, logic, mathematics and physics. At this point in my reading life, howev [...]
