'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 MonkFrom the Publisher:
