    One thought on “Portraits From Memory and Other Essays”

    1. Russell would not be surprised at the state of the world now, but he would be greatly disappointed in his fellow man.

    2. First how i came across this book. I see Tolstoy's hand of Prudence in that matter.One day as I scrolled down in one of my google searches, I found an article about 'an antique bookshop in Lahore' out of nowhere.

    5. It helps to be reminded that rebellion and opposition to the state is not a new phenomena. Russell has a lot to teach us. Great little book.

    6. Fascinating, thoughtful and surprisingly readable essays from the great philosopher-mathematician-political-thinker.
