Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) was born in England and educated at Trinity College, Cambridge. His long career established him as one of the most brilliant and influential philosophers, mathematicians, and social reformers of the twentieth century. Russell held progressive, sometimes controversial views on social issues. Briskly opposed to hidebound convention or guilt-based morality, he sets forth here a rationalist approach to achieving a happy life. In addition to The Conquest of Happiness, Bertrand Russell's books include The Principles of Mathematics, The Scientific Outlook, Education and the Modern World, Freedom Versus Organization, Power, and A History of Western Philosophy.Russell, Bertrand is the author of 'Conquest of Happiness', published 1996 under ISBN 9780871401625 and ISBN 0871401622.
