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...more
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...more
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...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 the arguments have russell's usual deftness and precision, even if they felt a little out of date from being so early in his career.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
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.

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

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.

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...
من نمی توانم مدعی بشوم که میدانم چگونه باید نوشت ، یااینکه یک منتقد خوب جه پندی باید به من بدهد که نوشتنم پیشرفت کند .... حد اعلای کاری که از دستم برمی آید این است چیزهای در بارۀ تلاشهای خودم نقل کنم. عرفان و منطق اثر: برتراند راسل

An excellent fusion...a powerfull insight..but to read it one may need certain pre-requisites i.e a needed subtility of thinking..
از برنده ی جایزه ی نوبل فلسفه و کسی که با یک پارادوکس کل نظریه ی مجموعه ها رو زیر و رو کرد نوشتن همچین کتاب شاهکاری بعید نبود
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.
Tanya Faberson
Loved it. Even the sections on mathematics. Bertrand Russell was a great writer.
Like the first few essays and the last few required pure willpower to complete.
Brilliant collection of essays.
