More About the Author

Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970). Philosopher, mathematician, educational and sexual reformer, pacifist, prolific letter writer, author and columnist, Bertrand Russell was one of the most influential and widely known intellectual figures of the twentieth century. In 1950 he was awarded the Noble Prize for Literature in 1950 for his extensive contributions to world literature and for his "rationality and humanity, as a fearless champion of free speech and free thought in the West."

Product Description


"The editors have done a marvellous job in arranging this wealth of material, bringing to their task a detailed knowledge of the historical context and a judicious assessment of Russell's political judgement... essential reading for any serious student of Russell's work, an invaluable source for historians of the first world war, of popular peace movements and of the history of British socialism...."-Times Higher Education Supplement, December 13 1996

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An indispensable - if hugely expensive - collection both for admirers of Russell and anyone interested in WWI, well introduced by the scholarly editors. Traces a dauntless and dogged opposition to the war, and then to the treatment of consciencious objectors up to 1916. At c.500 pages, not a quick read.

Profound Insights into a Profound Thinker 14 Oct. 2002
By Julia McDowell - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I am very impressed with this book, it allows us a view into Russell's thinking and personal research notes as he struggled with his theories of knowledge and logical atomism.
What is most interesting is to see his thought process 'behind the scenes' of some of his greatest ideas.
It is also good to have his famous essay 'On Denoting' finally available in book form.
For all lovers of this subject and fans of this man's thinking, this book is indispensible.

Betrand Russell: pre-eminent pacifist and socialist 23 Jun. 2000
By egalitarian ethos - Published on
Format: Hardcover
World War One was an epoch-making event which transformed the philosophy of Bertrand Russell from based mainly on logic, mathematics and epistemology to haumanitarian issues such as pacificism, freedom and the role of the state. "Collected Papers of Bertrand Russell: Pacifism and Revolution, 1916-18" provides glimpses into this transition and elucidates Russell's main arguments for pacifism and socialism: "No good to the community, of any sort or kind, results from the private ownership of land. If men were reasonable they would decree that it should cease tomorrow..." As private property is protected by the State, and the fraud and plunder that constitute property are sanctioned by legislation and enforced by weapons and war, Russell argued that the State is therefor a great evil and its functions must be taken over by community-based cooperatives and worker's syndicates. Fascinating, provocative and necessary reading.
