About this deal

Essentially, I've always thought that to move away from discussing the ‘truth’ of statements and to instead consider their ‘efficacy’ is a slippery slope and one that can all too easily bring us to splash down into logical and moral difficulties. The refugees who surround Palestine in their hundreds of thousands were described recently by the Washington journalist I.

He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1950 "in recognition of his varied and significant writings in which he champions humanitarian ideals and freedom of thought. Although he was usually regarded as English, as he spent the majority of his life in England, he was born in Wales, where he also died.To understand an age or a nation, we must understand its philosophy, and to understand its philosophy we must ourselves be in some degree philosophers. Invaluable is a word that is grossly overused on this site – particularly by me – but I do think this book gives an invaluable helicopter view of the history of Western Philosophy that is both accessible and often profound. In this, Rousseau is the predecessor of Nietzsche, who raised the notion of 'Will to Power' to unsurpassed heights.

A survey of Western philosophy from the pre-Socratic philosophers to the early 20th century, each major division of the book is prefaced by an account of the historical background necessary to understand the currents of thought it describes. Instead it has belonged to the amateurs of philosophy, in the sense of both those who love the pursuit and those who read it in their own time for their own instruction. Ainda assim, o trabalho realizado por Russell é imensamente detalhado, mais ainda se tivermos em atenção que foi feito sem recurso à internet que hoje a tudo dá acesso imediatamente, e num tempo de segunda guerra mundial. You hardly need to spend time scanning the reviews for Bertrand Russell’s History of Western Philosophy to know it’s a good book.And, though you now have my opinion as well, don't let that deter you from approaching this well-written work.
