Bertrand Russell

Bertrand Russell was a British philosopher, logician, essayist and social critic best known for his work in mathematical logic and analytic philosophy. Over the course of a long career, Russell also made important contributions to a broad range of other subjects, including ethics, politics, educational theory and religious studies, cheerfully ignoring Robert Hooke’s admonition against “meddling with Divinity, Metaphysics, Moralls, Politicks, Grammar, Rhetorick, or Logick.”
