Fact and Fiction
"This wide-ranging collection of Bertrand Russell's essays is available in paperback for the first time since its publication in 1961. Its first section deals with the books which influenced Russell in his youth. The works of Shelley, Turgenev, Ibsen and Gibbon are among those selected for discussion. The second part is devoted to essays on politics and education. The third section is one of divertissements and parables, which also includes some rare descriptions of Russell's dreams. Finally there are eleven essays and speeches concerned with peace and war, which include some of Russell's most famous pronouncements on nuclear warfare and international tension." "Fact and Fiction provides a valuable insight into the range of interests and depth of convictions of one of this century's greatest philosophers. This paperback edition includes a new introduction by John G. Slater, University of Toronto."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
