5.0 out of 5 stars A tome of wisdom, 9 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Basic Writings of Bertrand Russell (Routledge Classics) (Paperback)
A big book in more ways than one.
What distinguishes Russell is his ability to put great wisdom into very clear writing that is fairly easy to understand.
His style is unpretentious and goes right to the heart of the matter, combining a powerful intellect and a mastery of the English language.
He comes across as a humanist and liberal in favour of the ordinary man and woman and against religious dogma and the authoritarian state.
And aside from some academic philosophical subjects he deals with practical issues that are highly relevant to the times we live in today.
Every time I take this off the bookshelf it inspires and impresses me.
