    1. Plato, in the Symposium, was perhaps the first person to consider the question of the unliked review If a review never receives any votes, can it truly be said to exist This problem has tormented many of the world s greatest philosophers Bishop Berkeley s famous answer is that God reads and likes every review, hence they all exist Even at the time, this was not universally considered satisfactory Rousseau s reply, le compte de Dieu est priv , is widely quoted as the standard objection By the tim [...]

    2. The Problems of Philosophy was written in 1912 as an early attempt by its author to create a brief and accessible guide to the problems of philosophy Bertrand Russell is considered to be one of the founders of analytic philosophy, and is also widely held to be one of the 20th century s premier logicians He is generally thought to be one of the most important philosophers of the past two hundred years Extremely prolific and influential, he was awarded the Nobel prize for literature in 1950 Not on [...]

    4. An excellent introductory to the layperson me on some basics of philosophy the final section is a beautifully written piece on why philosophy is important and how it enriches humanity.

    5. Bertrand Russell is such a gentleman He writes in lucid, clear prose filled with insight and occasional brilliance He manages to compress enormous, complex debates into just a few paragraphs, and belies an encyclopedic knowledge of Western philosophy The book is a gem, and sparkles with subtlety and charm.But gentlemen can be dry His prose marches forward but never leaps and dances, his mind is a logical machine impervious to emotion, his philosophy is not a philosophy of life and art, but of kn [...]

    6. This book is intended to be an epistemology primer, but I think it fails pretty hard at that It reminds me of a Big Bang episode when Sheldon attempts to teach Penny physics Now, Introduction to physics What is physics Physics comes from the ancient Greek word physika Physika means the science of natural things And it is a warm summer evening in ancient Greece that our story begins In writing this book, Russell seemed very conscientious of an audience unseasoned in philosophy, so he often kicked [...]

    7. The synopsis for this book says This accessibly clear little book is a stimulating guide to those problems of philosophy which often mistakenly make the subject seem too lofty abstruse for laypersons.So it includes passages like When a case of acquaintance is one with which I can be acquainted as I am acquainted with my acquaintance with the sense datum representing the sun , it is plain that the person acquainted is myself Thus, when I am acquainted with my seeing the sun, the whole fact with w [...]

    8. A mis titled book rather, Some Problems of Philosophy of the late 19th and early 20th century, Many of Which Have Been Addressed.Discusses epistemology, absolutes, a priori and a posteriori knowledge, truth and falsehood It does these very well A quite reasonable introduction on basic problems But it s still very interesting, and Russell is one of the most readable of the philosophers Dare I say it, his style actually flows well.

    9. A great work of philosophical inquiry by Russell the book explains the basic problems of philosophy in a very interesting manner The books talks on the famous problem existence of matter This seminal work of Russell discusses the real purpose of philosophy the purpose that ought to be rather than what it is supposed to be.

    10. My usual definition for a philosopher is somebody who writes on a simple everyday concept in such a way that the simple is considered complexly in such way that a person knows and about less and less until eventually they know everything about nothing By that definition, Russell fails because he writes clearly and the reader will actually understand what he is getting at.Not only will the reader understand, he ll be able to explain it to others For example, one of the most important concepts i [...]

    11. One of the first classic works of philosophy I read as a whole, as opposed to merely excerpts in my first year textbook It is very dated now, being 100 years old, but it is interesting both as a historical document and as an introduction to some of the concerns of twentieth century Anglo American philosophy, and in some cases, philosophy throughout history.Russell s prose is simple and easy to understand, but quite often the conclusions he reaches which he believes to be obvious or intuitive har [...]

    12. J avais re u ce livre 18 ans, sans jamais avoir eu le courage de le lire, et il a fallu attendre des lustres avant que je sois en tat de m y int resser Dans cet ouvrage, Bertrand Russel, un philosophe anglais crit la veille du premier conflit mondial au sujet de connaissance, reprenant un th me ouvert depuis le Th t te de Platon Comme presque tous les philosophe anglais, il met un point d honneur exposer ses id es avec clart , afin de les mettre la port e du plus grand nombre, sans s abriter der [...]

    13. En el cap tulo 1, Apariencia y realidad , Russell plantea que es plausible dudar de la realidad de los objetos f sicos que nos rodean Afirma que los datos de los sentidos lo que nos es inmediatamente conocido en la sensaci n colores, sonidos, olores, durezas, asperezas, etc no determinan la forma real de un objeto f sico sino tan solo su apariencia Los datos de los sentidos var an con condiciones como la posici n, la luz y la presi n, y esto nos induce a desconfiar de ellos El objeto real, si ex [...]

    14. Um livro de introdu o filosofia moderna, simplesmente brilhante N o por acaso que Bernard Russell recebeu o Nobel em 1950, a sua capacidade expositiva e emp tica, para dar conta de problem ticas complexas como a realidade, verdade, conhecimento, m todo cient fico, entre outros impressionante Ao longo de pouco mais de 100 p ginas, Russell apresenta, num modo de grande simplicidade, alguns dos temas mais relevantes, de sempre, da filosofia, convidando nos para o debate verdade que nem sempre o dis [...]

    15. The title s a misnomer the book is almost exclusively about epistemology, or theory of knowledge This reflects the narrowing of philosophy s scope in the English speaking world 100 years ago, eventually making itself or less a subdiscipline of linguistics a self imposed constriction which has only fairly recently been loosened But Russell treats his subject with characteristic lucidity the clarity and precision of his logic and phrasing have a certain austere beauty, if that s the right word An [...]

    16. This is an incredibly good book for somebody just getting started to learn about epistemology I don t think Russell delves too much into anything else like metaphysics, certainly not logic, art, or ethics His focus is on epistemology If knowledge is possible, if a priori knowledge is possible, comparing the rationalist and empiricists, etc.What I love most about this book is that it reaches a conclusion Many philosophers prefer to just show the examples of other philosophers ideas but Russell ac [...]

    17. This book gives no answers It asks and intrigues a multiple of questions and doesn t expect you to have answers for them, either.Beautifully written and easy to read It mainly discusses the differences between appearance or perspective and reality, and how truth to us humans is either collected by description or acquaintance This question I had no answer to after I finished reading the book If I become acquainted with something over time, and I started giving descriptions and characteristics to [...]

    18. The concepts in this book are not unfamiliar to me I have come across them before, yet I am nowhere near fully understanding them.I wished Russel would have used fascinating examples, but unfortunately he was very uniform it got a bit boring in his explanations I also have to admit that there were parts where I couldn t follow what he was trying to convey To philosophy enthusiasts this would probably be a good book, but to me it s just another read.

    19. Good little introduction A bit too simplistic and Russell doesn t take some problems as seriously as he ought to.

    20. The evidence is strong, that there is no doubt, that this is that, and that is this, and this, is a BOORRING read Thus therefore necessarily concluding the derivative that this book has firmly been judged, and the probability high, that this book is REALLY boring The end was good though.

    21. sparknotes philosophy 1 Philosophy, if it cannot answer so many questions as we could wish, has at least the power of asking questions which increase the interest of the world, and show the strangeness and wonder lying just below the surface even in the commenst things of daily life.2 Even though we doubt about the existence of physical object, we are certain about existence of sence data themselves.3 All knowledge we find must be built up upon our instrictive beliefs and if these are rejected, [...]
