Abstract:

Bertrand Russell & rsquo;s classic primer on Western philosophy and the greatest thinkers of the past three millennia With zest and rigor, Bertrand Russell applies twentieth-century thinking to age-old philosophy, from the works of Plato and Aristotle to those of Ren & eacute; Descartes and John Locke. In The Problems of Philosophy, he reviews the Western canon & rsquo;s most influential ideas and thought experiments, offering a comprehensive and enlightening text for curious and seasoned philosophy readers alike. Infused with Russell & rsquo;s own observations and critiques, this study offers reviews of topics such as idealism, knowledge, and the natures of truth, reality, and existence. Including the author & rsquo;s prominent thinking on knowledge by acquaintance versus knowledge by description, The Problems of Philosophy is a critical look at the major philosophical accomplishments spanning from classical Greece to the twentieth century. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
