Bertrand Russell'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 ̌Descartes and John Locke. In The Problems of Philosophy, he reviews the Western canon's most influential ideas and thought experiments, offering a comprehensive and enlightening text for curious and seasoned philosophy readers alike. Infused with Russell'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'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.
