    1. A parade of the achievements of logical positivism, this book is extremely helpful to the non specialist One, it explains the nature of 20th century logic prior logic, throughout history, merely served to make the logician narrow minded than truly logical now we know that logic entails relations just as much as qualities of a thing The effect is dramatic logic does not narrow to a point, but literally unfolds several equally applicable paths for instance, the overlapping of Schrodinger and Heis [...]

    2. Chapter 1 Current Tendencies Mr Russell begins with the famous opening lines, Philosophy, since the earliest times, has made greater claims, and achieved fewer results, than any other branch of learning Ever since Thales said that all is water, philosophers have been ready with glib assertions about the sum total of things and equally glib denials have come from other philosophers ever since Thales was contradicted by Anaximander I believe that the time has now arrived when this unsatisfactory s [...]

    4. Bertrand Russell had one of the clearest, as well as the most brilliant minds of the 20th century The clarity certainly shows here, because I was reading a wretchedly OCRd version on my Kindle, and though every eighth word was mangled I was still able to follow and make sense of what s really a pretty abstruse bit of poking at and with logic Russell loved to show off that mind of his I m smarter than you ll ever be , but he made the process fun, in part because of his incredibly subtle sense of [...]

    5. Such a wondrous book It presents very interesting lectures of the one of the most prominent philosophers of the 20th century,Bertrand Russell.In these lectures,Russell pointed out the defects of the classical logic and then with the aid of modern logic,he went out constructing a working hypothesis of the world given by physical science which is logically unobjectionable.Not only he fell for no personal idiosyncracies in contrast to those mystic philosophers,he also avoided making bold beliefs an [...]

    6. The final lecture on causation and free will was good Bertrand Russell had a gift for coming up with illustrations.

    7. We are led to a somewhat vague distinction between what we may call hard data and soft data This distinction is a matter of degree, and must not be pressed but if not taken too seriously it may help to make the situation clear I mean by hard data those which resist the solvent influence of critical reflection, and by soft data those which, under the operation of this process, become to our minds or less doubtful.

    8. Precise, clear, and stimulating discussions on the world of sense, infinity, the continuity of motion, and causation.
