bookshelves: philosophy-of-love

Wow, Bertrand Russel is a riot! This has a wonderful satirical bite, and works as an open inquiry. Despite his stated rationalist bias, he really is an enthusiastic proponent of love free from at least some assumptions about it. It is of course jarring when he reveals himself to have other assumptions or some sympathy for eugenics (only racial in the case of Blacks and Native Americans, the rest intellectual eugenics!) But really a little sad but impressive how much of his comments have either come to pass. Or we are still awaiting them to do so.
