There is something strange about Russell’s writing. Although he often adopts a formal, even stilted, style, and tackles the most abstruse logical problems, his personality is always floating in the background, barely out of sight. The feeling is like Russell is there, in the room with you, reading aloud from his work. His ability to adopt this warm, personal style while appearing not to do so is why I think he is a fantastic writer.

This is related to another persistent feature of his writing. Wh

Even though these essays were written nearly 100 years ago, Russell comes across clearly while remaining eloquent and succinct. The subject matter is rather abstract, dealing mostly with mysticism, religion, and logic. The last few essays are aimed at a rather small niche audience of mathematicians, physicists, and logicians, but were still comprehensible although not quite as interesting as the opening pieces.

This is another book that was just ok on a first skimming, but was much more rewarding on a second reading.

This book is a series of essays that develops a mysticism based on mathematics, but without a belief in the supernatural. It starts off supporting the attitude of mysticism as a better way to live while dismissing the worldview behind it. It then presents mathematics as a fit object for mystic contemplation. In the process, a criticism of math education and a support for pure mathematics ar
بینش عرفانی با احساس برداشته شدن پرده از راز آغاز می شود. با احساس درخشش ناگهانی چهرۀ حقیقتی که تاکنون پنهان بوده است و اکنون دیگر شکی درآن نمی توان داشت. این احساس کشف و شهود مقدم بر اعتقاد معین است. اعتقادات معین نتیجۀ تامل و تعوق عارف است...

برتراند راسل در این کتاب اعتقاد به وحدت رو از جنبه های اصلی عرفان نام برده! البته خوب توضیح نداده اعتقاد به وحدت چی دقیقا؟! من فکر می کرداعتقاد به وحدت و انکار تکثر و تضاد بیشتر به روشهای مذهبی و مسلکی مربوط باشه و ربطی به عرفان نداره...شایدم من اشتباه می

فصل مربوط به وجود خدا که منظره ای بین راسل و یک استاد الهیات در باره وجود خداست و مقاله مربوط به عرفان و منطق فوق العاده بودند. نظرات و اندیشه های راسل بسیار تاثیرگذارند یا بهتر بگم من رو خیلی تحت تاثیر قرار داده اند

An excellent fusion...a powerfull insight..but to read it one may need certain pre-requisites i.e a needed subtility of thinking..

Sometimes brilliant, but sometimes tedious examination of philosophy and science, good and evil, logic and mysticism, and knowledge itself.

چرا به فلسفه پرداختم؟

انگیزه هایی که مردمان را به فلسفه کشانده گوناگون بوده هست.با حرمت ترین انگیزه ها میل به شناختن جهان بوده هست.در زمان قدیم که فلسفه و علم از یکدیگر متمایز نبودند،این انگیزه غالب بود.انگیزه دیگری که در قدیم بسیار موثر بود فریبنده بودن حواس بود-سوالاتی از این قبیل:
رنگین کمان در کجاست؟ آیا اشیا همان هستند که در آفتاب به نظر می رسند،یا آنکه در ماهتاب؟یا به عبارت جدیدتر،آیا اشیا واقعا همان هستند که به چشم برهنه می آیند یا انکه از پشت میکروسکوپ دیده می شوند؟

Although these essays contain many flaws, they are packed with insights. Accordingly, I highly recommend them.
The first essay, "Mysticism and Logic," provides a good overview of the features common to mystical experiences and the tenets common to mystical philosophies. His treatment of the reason/intuition dichotomy is flawed, however, because, reason ultimately gains its legitimacy from intuition. In the section devoted to "Good and Evil," Russell gives no arguments that ethical predicates are

Very deep essays on the human being, being human with essay I. "Mysticism and Logic" the most popular, but don't stop reading at the end of that essay. My favorite that resonated the most with me was III. "A Free Man's Worship" in which Russell struggles with finding meaning in life through helping fellow travelers along the journey through life. A life changing read for sure! One of the most compassionate authors for sure. A true foul to the writings of authors such as Rand and Friedman's pro C ...more

read parts of this today because I was able to get it for free on my kindle. the arguments have russell's usual deftness and precision, even if they felt a little out of date from being so early in his career. mainly, i just sort of wanted to revisit russell, since i think he had the best/clearest prose in all of philosophy, and in that regard especially (not to mention how essentially humane he was), i think contemporary philosophers have a lot to learn

بیشتر نظرات راسل در حیطه منطق و احسان نسبت به سایر فلاسفه نقل شده راسل سعی کرده بدون نقد نظریات دیگران نظر خودش و به خواننده منتقل کنه و به هیچ وجه تحمیل مطلب در این کتاب وجود نداره
در کل کتاب جالب و ساده است

Un bel libro, diversi saggi uniti assieme e affrontati con il consueto stile logico, l'approccio per cui Russel è storicamente rinomato. Certo, forse alcune ipotetiche visioni sono controverse, e altrettante addirittura sorpassate, ma ancora oggi il libro rimane, per così dire, moderno.
Negar Khalili
بعضی قسمت های کتاب جالب و فکر برانگیز بودن.خصوصا ترجمه ی دریابندری روان و شیوا بود و مشکلاتی که خواننده در خوندن کتاب های ترجمه شده فلسفی اغلب باهاش مواجه میشه در این کتاب نبود...
موضوع دیگه ای که خیلی نظرم رو جلب کرد ، تاثیر فیزیک جدید در فلسفه بود...

My rating refers only to the first essay in this collection, which is the only one I read. It is absolutely charming!

به چند بار خواندنش می ارزد.
مطالب بسیاری میشود یاد گرفت که در مورد درک فلسفه و منطق و عرفان راه گشا باشد.

Indicative of Russell's distinct lack of knowledge of religion. Not without logical fault, but worth reading on the whole.

Although he was usually regarded as English, as he spent the majority of his life in England, he was born in Wales, where he also died.

He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1950 "in recognition of his var

“Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty— a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show. The true spirit of delight, the exaltation, the sense of being more than Man, which is the touchstone of the highest excellence, is to be found in mathematics as surely as poetry.” 14 likes
