RUSSELL, Bertrand (Bertrand Arthur William, Third Earl Russell), 1872-1970 : HISTORY OF WESTERN PHILOSOPHY AND ITS CONNECTION WITH POLITICAL AND SOCIAL CIRCUMSTANCES FROM THE EARLIEST TIMES TO THE PRESENT DAY.
London : George Allen & Unwin, (1946). First British edition. A fluent, witty, elegant, and sweeping survey of the philosophic tradition, treated as much as social and cultural history as in terms of pure philosophy – the Pre-Socratics; Socrates, Plato, Aristotle; the Cynics, Sceptics, Stoics, and Epicureans; Jewish, Mohammedan, and Catholic scholars; and the modern tradition – Machiavelli, Erasmus and More, Bacon, Hobbes, Descartes, Spinoza, Leibniz, Locke, Berkeley, Hume, Rousseau, Kant, Hegel, Byron, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Marx, Bergson, William James, Dewey, etc. “I was sometimes accused by reviewers of writing not a true history but a biased account of the events that I arbitrarily chose to write of. But, to my mind, a man without bias cannot write interesting history – if, indeed, such a man exists” (Bertrand Russell).
