BOOK TWO. The Religious Development of the Jews 308 Chapter II. Christianity During the First Four Centuries Chapter III. Three Doctors of the Church Chapter I. THE conceptions of life and the world which we call "philosophical" are a product of two factors: one, inherited religious and ethical conceptions; the other, the sort of investigation which may be called "scientific," using this word in its broadest sense.

My Philosophical Development book. Bertrand Arthur William Russell, 3rd Earl Russell, OM, FRS, was a Welsh philosopher, historian, logician, mathematician, advocate for social reform, pacifist, and prominent rationalist. 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.

As Karl Popper said, linguistics is nothing more than cleaning one's spectacles.

Russell surveys nearly 70 years of his own work in this philosophical autobiography. Mr Alan Wood, whose book The Passionate Sceptic won widespread and well-deserved applause, was intending to write a more technical examination of my philosophy, but at the time of his death only a small part of this work had been completed

BERTRAND RUSSELL (1872-1970) was a British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, writer, social critic, and political activist. At various points in his life, Russell considered himself a liberal, a socialist and a pacifist, but he also admitted that he had "never been any of these things, in any profound sense". He was awarded the 1950 Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his varied and significant writings in which he champions humanitarian ideals and freedom of thought.

Russell quickly added an appendix to his book that discussed Frege's work, acknowledged Frege's earlier discoveries, and explained the differences in their respective understandings of the nature of logic. The tragedy of Russell's intellectual life is that the deeper he thought about logic, the more his exalted conception of its significance came under threat. He himself described his philosophical development after The Principles of Mathematics as a retreat from Pythagoras.

A survey such as this by one of the world's leading thinkers of his entire philosophical canon, is clearly as important as it is fascinating. It is a masterpiece of philosophical autobiography.

Bertrand Russell is one of my favorite writers. I've really enjoyed his political writings and his History of Western Philosophy. That said, I didn't understand much of this book. I'm not very familiar with mathematical logic, and this book talks about it a lot. Which makes sense!

It was interesting to skim through, but know that if you aren't that familiar with Russell's work in mathematics and logic, you probably won't get much out of this.

This is important for reading Ray Monk's fundamental ground breaking biographies of Ludwig Wittgenstein and his mirror image Bertrand Russell.

Bertrand Russell was an utmost clinical analyzer of the scriptures of his colleague-philosophers. With his penetrating mathematical insights he could easily translate their often dark and contorted formulations into plain comprehensible sentences and expose the real meaning and/or the inner contradictions of their highbrow wordings.

In this book, he exposes harshly the morass of linguistics and Wittgenstein's `Philosophical Investigations', demolishes William James, tells how he destroyed unintentionally Frege's life work and gives insightful comments on Tarski, Ryle and his own struggle with induction.

Astonishingly, the main influence on his life as a philosopher was not a philosophic problem, but World War I: `One effect of that war was to make it impossible for me to go on living in a world of abstraction.' It turned him away from pure mathematics.

Morass of linguistics
Bertrand Russell had no `sympathy with those who treat language as an autonomous province.' For him, `the essential thing about language is that it has meaning, that it is related to something non-linguistic.'
As Karl Popper said, linguistics is nothing more than cleaning one's spectacles.

Wittgenstein
Bertrand Russell was extremely harsh for Wittgenstein's second philosophical period (the `Philosophical Investigations'), where `we are now told that it is not the world that we are to try to understand but only sentences', nor the separation of `what may count as knowledge from what must be rejected as unfounded opinion.'
`The positive doctrines seem to me trivial and its negative doctrines unfounded.'

William James
B. Russell explains that for William James, `a belief is rendered true by the excellence of its effects'. More, William James `says that what he means is not that the consequences of the belief are good, but that the believer thinks they will be.'!

Ryle, Tarski
B. Russell doesn't agree with Ryle (`philosophy cannot be fruitful if divorced from empirical science'), but he agrees with Tarski `that truth consists in one sort of relation to facts, while falsehood consists in another sort of relation.'

In his characteristic sarcastic and vitriolic style, Bertrand Russell torpedoes in this book big chunks of modern `philosophy'. It is a must read for all those interested in philosophy and the way of the world.
