US Kirkus Review » A this year's Nobel prize winner writes about man, nature, civilization, science, religion, politics, superstitions, mores, God and philosophy in these eleven essays, eight of which are new. Mr. Russell is an erudite, talented and witty writer - and a controversial figure in educational circles. Here is his personal philosophy, presented, for the most part, with philosophic calm, though he takes occasional bites at Plato, Aristotle, and some more modern. His purpose- to fight the growth of dogmatism, at the base of world tragedy. A believer in empirical liberalism, and therefore in democracy, he sees a world government arrived at conceivably through force as modern man's only solution. He speculates that one of the following will occur:- (1) the end of human life; (2) a reversion to barbarism after a catastrophic dimunition of global population; (3) world government. If the latter can be achieved, a good, leisurely and satisfying life will follow. (Kirkus Reviews)
