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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great book, bad edition 27 Aug 2010
Russell's brilliant classic is a easy introduction to his views on a number of topics in philosophy of mathematics and logic, and remains a good place to approach these topics in their own right. Unfortunately, this edition (Forgotten Books) is unacceptable, as it fails to reprint p. 83.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very accessible mathematical classic 30 Sep 1998
By A Customer
An excellent and lucid exposition of what we really mean when we talk about 2 houses, or 1/2 an hour, or square root of 2 meters, or that the counting numbers are infinite. It does not require any prior mathematical knowledge beyond the basics, although it probably will be of interest only to those that care about math at its most abstract. It is fascinating to realize how much we take for granted when we do math and how much ingenuity it takes to pin down the concept of number. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Difficult To Read 17 Oct 2011
By Jerome
Amazing book. However this edition was awful, alright into the first chapter there was spelling mistakes. I downloaded another edition online for free. I definitely recommend the book, just not this edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars buyer beware 4 Jan 2012
Buyer beware: some editions of this book are produced by the process of scanning and then optical character recognition. This process generally works well for pure text but can cause problems for equations, strings of numbers. The copy I got from Amazon itself, pub. by GeneralBooks, was appalling - the equations had produced unrecognizable gibberish and there were many omisions and other errors. Not worth having. Amazon kindly refunded without charge.

(Note that these reviews appear to all the editions - not just a particular one)
