AUTHOR

Russell, Bertrand, Gottlieb, Anthony

SUMMARY

Intolerance and bigotry lie at the heart of all human suffering. So claims Bertrand Russell at the outset of In Praise of Idleness , a collection of essays in which he espouses the virtues of cool reflection and free enquiry; a voice of calm in a world of maddening unreason. From a devastating critique of the ancestry of fascism to a vehement defence of 'useless' knowledge, with consideration given to everything from insect pests to the human soul, this is a tour de force that only Bertrand Russell could perform.Russell, Bertrand is the author of 'In Praise of Idleness And Other Essays', published 2004 under ISBN 9780415325066 and ISBN 0415325064.
