Perhaps the most profoundly influential thinker of the 20th century, Bertrand Russell's emphasis on science, logic, and humanism shocked readers of his time and continues to lend his work a modern authority.
This collection of Russell's outlook on capitalism and socialism, individual liberty, and globalism was first published in 1917, but it is as fresh and relevant today as it was almost a century ago.
From his cry against the economic slavery of the majority of workers to his championing of the unconventional, this is an essential peek into the beliefs that shaped Russell's later work and a rallying cry for the radical intellectual.
British philosopher and mathematician BERTRAND ARTHUR WILLIAM RUSSELL (1872-1970) won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1950. Among his many works are Why I Am Not a Christian (1927), Power: A New Social Analysis (1938), and My Philosophical Development (1959).
