Nada é sagrado. Sexo, moral, política, sociedade - todo assunto é páreo para o gênio ácido e a mente lúcida de Bertrand Russell (1872-1970), o filósofo mais expressivo e engajado do século XX, ao lado de Sartre. Em No que Acredito, publicado em 1925, ele reflete sobre o papel e a influência da religião na vida das pessoas. Trata-se de um livro emblemático do seu célebre e ...more

My thoughts about the roles of faith and religion in mankind's life are opposite to Russell's, but reading this man always gives me a great joy. This book is mainly related to sources and methods for a good life. Russell thinks that the scientific education is the best weapon with which we can transform impulsive, fearful and timid children to loving, humanistic and courageous adults. Isn't that admirable: "A good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge."

هذا الكتاب يحوي مقالات تختصر بشكل بسيط وواضح أفكار وتوجهات المفكر برتراند راسل، أعجبني اختيار المترجم للمقالات وجودة ترجمته لها

هو عبارة عن كتاب يجمع مجموعة من مقالات راسل حول الدين والاخلاق والفلسفة .. يتكون بشكل عام من اربع اقسام .. القسم الاول يحتوي على كتاب راسل الصغير " ما الذي أؤمن به" والذي يشرح فيه رؤيته الفلسفية للأخلاق والأنسان والطبيعة .. القسم الثاني مخصص لمقالات الدين ، ويحتوى على ست مقالات : " لماذا لست مسيحياً " ، " هل قدم الدين مساهمات مفيدة للحضارة " ، " من هو اللاأدري ؟ " ، " هل ننجو من الموت " ، " إيمان العقلاني " ، " عبادة الانسان الحر " .. القسم الثالث مخصص لقضايا الحرية ويحتوى على مقالتين : " التفكي

وكما قال أينشتاين: أنا أدين بساعات من السعادة لا تعدّ ولا تحصى لقراءتي أعمال راسل.. رغم كون الكتاب فلسفيّ بالدرجة الأولى، ودي تجربتي الأولى مع عمل فلسفي، فأنا كنت مبسوط وأنا بقرأ. الكتاب أسلوبه جميل، واختيارات الموضوعات والمقالات حلوة، وترجمة عدي عظيمة، بسبب اسم عدي على الكتاب أنا قريته، باعتبار عدي صديق على الفيسبوك، واكتشفت منه إن راسل جميل جدًّا، رجل حر، متسامح ومتنوِّر.

ربما تتفق معي ومعه، أو تختلف، على رؤيته للحياة وأهمية ما يؤثِّر فيها ويحركها، ربما ترى أن للدين تأثير مختلف، ربما ترى أي شي

Incredibly good well written set of essays that flow together. If you are a human being and have your basic needs met and have time to reflect about yourself and the nature of being human, these essays should be required reading. 'Love with knowledge' is our guide for morality. The Euthyprho dilemma explained in terms of God's fiat is the first time I've ever really understood it.

I still hear the special pleading arguments which were outlined in this book used by people today even after they hav

“What I believe” is a fairly small book in size, but vastly beneficial. Like the titles suggests, Bertrand Russell explores his wide and most profound beliefs. Not only religiously, but also economically and socially. I have to say that it is hard to disagree with the man. He has a way of projecting his views in a way that is both simple and effective. His views are to be studied by men of expertise. Meanwhile, by a simple contemplation, one can simply see where he comes from. For example his id ...more

This essay was only 40 pages long, but in that 40 pages Bertrand Russell managed to pack in lots of thought provoking ideas. Since it was a library book, I felt duty bound to make notes of some of his more noteworthy quotes. I can see why this book made the establishment so unhappy. He turns lots of ideas that we take on board so uncritically and makes you question them. It is not just religion that he has in his sights, but also morality, our treatment of criminals and education.

'What I Believe' is a remarkable essay on humanism and personal philosophies of Bertrand Russell. Originally published in 1925, it's just as relevant today. His simple yet elegant style should be a guide for anyone interested in disseminating clear ideas and sound opinions.

Russell, in this elegant paragraph sums up his idea of what constitutes a life well-lived:
My view is this:

The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. Knowledge and love are both indefinitely extensible; the

Para uma vida virtuosa misture amor e conhecimento.
ثلاث مقالات طويلة للفيلسوف واسع التأثير، يحكي فيها عن معتقداته الشخصية، والأسباب التي قادته لها.

الكتاب بمجمله هو عن نظرته السلبية للنصرانية (المقال الثاني بأكمله هو بعنوان "لماذا لست نصرانياً")، مقابل إيمانه بالأخلاق البشرية الإيجابية التي لا تنبع من تشريع إلهي أو كتاب سماوي، بل من دافع اشباع رغبات الأفراد في مجتمع، ومحاولة التقاء هذه الرغبات مع بعضها.

في معرض عرض رأيه عن أسباب عدم اقتناعه بالنصرانية، يبين أيضاً أسباب عدم ايمانه بوجود الله، وهو صريح وواضح حول كونه ملحداً.

الكتاب مثير للاهتمام لأن
