THE BASIC WRITINGS OF BERTRAND RUSSELL

Russell anthologies have been published which emphasize one period in his thought, ideas he held on a short-term basis and collections of his thoughts on a particular subject; this is not another of these volumes. The aim here has been to offer a diversified multicolored panorama of Bertrand Russell, philosopher, psychologist, mathematician, historian, short-story writer and autobiographer through an anthology of 81 essays and excerpts covering a period of some 57 years. In keeping with this aim, the editors have sought to present his most serious reflections as well as a sampling of lighter fare. There are 17 main subject categories in all with four or five essays in each.
