Synopsis

This edition of Russell's 'My Philosophical Development' includes a new introduction by Thomas Baldwin, from the University of Cambridge. Russell surveys nearly 70 years of his own work in this philosophical autobiography.

Excerpt

Mr Alan Wood, whose book The Passionate Sceptic won widespread and well-deserved applause, was intending to write a more technical examination of my philosophy, but at the time of his death only a small part of this work had been completed. This small part included an Introduction, and this Introduction has seemed to those who have read it to be of value, and, therefore, worth publishing. On this ground, it is being printed at the end of the present volume. If it had become available sooner, it would have been put at the beginning of the volume, but it came too late for this to be possible. I think readers may find it advisable to turn to it first, as it admirably clarifies various things that might otherwise cause misunderstanding. It is deeply to be regretted that Mr Wood did not live to complete the work.
