About the Book

Bertrand Russell, a philosopher, published The Problems of Philosophy in 1912. In this book, he makes an effort to produce a short and accessible overview of the issues with philosophy. He describes philosophy as a series of ongoing (failed) attempts to address the same issues. Philosophy cannot provide value by providing answers to these issues through proof.According to Bertrand Russell, the existence of external things cannot be questioned based solely on sensory evidence. Russell explains his well-known distinction between information gained by acquaintance and knowledge gained via description made in 1910. Aristotle, Descartes, David Hume, John Locke, Immanuel Kant, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, and other thinkers are among those whose views he introduces.A summary of significant philosophical contributions is given in The Problems of Philosophy. Russell evaluates earlier arguments critically and reacts to them using his own set of distinctions and tools. However, the context in which problems develop is universal, as is what interests us about reality and our perception of it.

About Author

Bertrand Russell

Bertrand Arthur William Russell, OM, FRS was a British mathematician, philosopher, logician, and public intellectual who lived from 18 May 1872 to 2 February 1970. He had a significant impact on a number of branches of analytic philosophy as well as mathematics, logic, set theory, linguistics, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, and computer science. Russell was raised in a prominent, liberal British family. He taught German social democracy at the London School of Economics in 1896. In 1903, he released The Principles of Mathematics, a book on the foundations of mathematics. He was hired as a lecturer at Trinity College, a University of Cambridge institution, in 1910. Russell was one of the few individuals actively involved in pacifist initiatives during World War I. As a member of a British government delegation sent to study the consequences of the Russian Revolution, Bertrand Russell traveled to Soviet Russia in 1920. In 1940, he was hired as a philosophy professor at the City College of New York (CCNY), but following a backlash from the public over his views on morality and marriage, his appointment was annulled. On February 2, 1970, shortly after 8 o'clock at his Penrhyndeudraeth house, Russell died from influenza. On February 5, 1970, his corpse was burned in Colwyn Bay with five witnesses.
