''Philosophy' is a word which has been used in many ways, some wider, some narrower. I propose to use it in a very wide sense, which I will now try to explain.' - Bertrand Russell
Nearly forty years since its first publication, History of Western Philosophy
remains unchallenged as the ultimate introduction to its subject, while claiming classic status in its own right. It is the bestselling philosophy book of the twentieth century and one of the most important philosophical works of all time. This compact and affordable paperback edition makes this comprehensive and brilliantly-written text readily available for a new generation of readers.

As part of our commitment to Russell publishing, the delux version of this bestselling title will continue to be available.

Review:

'A great philosopher's lucid and magisterial look at the history of his own subject. Wonderfully readable and enlightening.' - Observer

'History of Western Philosophy remains unchallenged as the perfect introduction to its subject. Russell ... writes with the kind of verve, freshness and personal engagement that lesser spirits would never have permitted themselves. This boldness, together with the astonishing breadth of his general historical knowledge, allows him to put philosophers into their social and cultural context ... The result is exactly the kind of philosophy that most people would like to read, but which only Russell could possibly have written.' - Ray Monk
