Bertrand Russell : The Art of Philosophizing and Other Essays - contents* Source: Bertrand Russell : The Art of Philosophizing and Other Essays (New York; Philosphical Library, 1968)
The art of rational conjecture
The art of drawing inferences
The art of reckoning
The essays in this little volume, published here for the first time in book form, were written by Bertrand Russell during the second World War.
In those years the author was teaching philosophy at American universities, exercising a growing influence on America's student population.
The essays assembled here are fundamentally concerned with "the art of reckoning" in the fields of mathematics, logic and philosophy
The simplicity of Russell's exposition is astonishing, as is his ability to get to the core of the great philosophical issues and to skillfully probe the depth of philosophical analysis.
