Reading Russell, one feels as though despair can be understood and solved by studying statistical data. The most natural antidote to the cold precision of Russell I can think of is the existential cannon.

But that aside, to understand such epistemological concepts as Idealism, Rationalism, the limits of knowledge et al, Russell's short book is a really helpful guide. I own a beautiful leather-bound edition of this book. And it was precisely the binding, reminiscent of a time gone by, that made my reading of this book so fascinating - it reminded me of a time when it was believed that positivists have almost deciphered life for you, or they thought so.
