This is an auction for HISTORY OF WESTERN PHILOSOPHY by Bertrand Russell.

This is a Folio Society hardback in new condition, in its original slip case.

Introduction by A C Grayling.

"A precious book ... a work that is in the highest degree pedagogical which stands above the conflicts of parties and opinions."
– Albert Einstein

"Parts of this famous book are sketchy ... in other respects it is a marvellously readable, a magnificently sweeping survey of Western thought, distinctive for placing it informatively into its historical context. Russell enjoyed writing it, and the enjoyment shows; his later remarks about it equally show that he was conscious of its shortcomings."
– A. C. Grayling

From Wikipedia:

"A History of Western Philosophy is a book by philosopher Bertrand Russell. A survey of Western philosophy from the pre-Socratic philosophers to the early 20th century, it became a popular and commercial success, and has remained in print from its first publication. When Russell was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1950, the book was cited as one of those that won him the award. The book provided Russell with financial security for the last part of his life. The work is divided into three books, each of which is subdivided into chapters; each chapter generally deals with a single philosopher, school of philosophy, or period of time. They are:

* Ancient Philosophy

* Catholic Philosophy

* Modern Philosophy..."
