About this deal

Isto toliko koliko sam ranije imao manje razumevanja za ovu knjigu, sad mi prija da čitam poglavlja o Plotinu npr.

Instead it is a critical survey, a long catalogue of what Russell agrees and disagrees with among all the major doctrines. Instead it has belonged to the amateurs of philosophy, in the sense of both those who love the pursuit and those who read it in their own time for their own instruction. Although I still think it is very handy as a ready reference on a great many philosophers – it is much better, as I've found, to have read it all first. Because of the partisan nature of its views, and the quick, witty style of their presentation, it has never been a staple as an academic textbook. Ainda assim, o trabalho realizado por Russell é imensamente detalhado, mais ainda se tivermos em atenção que foi feito sem recurso à internet que hoje a tudo dá acesso imediatamente, e num tempo de segunda guerra mundial.As a historian, he is using at least three hats as: mathematician, English citizen and philosopher himself.

In Volume 1, Russell deals with Greek philosophy, up to and including the times of the Roman Empire. The critic George Steiner, writing in Heidegger (1991), described A History of Western Philosophy as "vulgar", noting that Russell omits any mention of Martin Heidegger. This is because the book is not a mere history of philosophy, a mere account of ideas, by any stretch. O melhor do livro é sem dúvida o derrube de vários mitos e ideias criadas no imaginário ocidental a propósito da extensa linha temporal de filósofos que liga Sócrates a Russell. First published in 1946, History of Western Philosophy went on to become the best-selling philosophy book of the twentieth century.Noutro campo, e graças à sua veia crítica, é interessante ver como desmonta os mitos de Esparta, nomeadamente o seu criador Plutarco. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The aggression committed by Israel must be condemned, not only because no state has the right to annex foreign territory, but because every expansion is an experiment to discover how much more aggression the world will tolerate. We therefore need to exercise caution in relying on Russell's methodology, perspectives and conclusions. Every community is exposed to two opposite dangers, ossification through too much discipline and reverence for tradition, on the one hand; on the other hand, dissolution, or subjection to foreign conquest, through the growth of an individualism and personal independence that makes co-operation impossible.
