課程概述

Bertand Russell (1872-1970) is one of the most influential philosophers of the 20th century and an excellent writer. He wrote on philosophy of mathematics and philosophy of mind as well as on political and social issues. His book The Problems of Philosophy is a short introductory book to problems of philosophy of knowledge, mainly from British empiricist points of view and mainly about theories of knowledge. It appeared in 1912 and became a bestseller. It is still in print today. On about 160 pages, Russell discusses the nature of appearance and reality, matter, idealism, induction, a priori knowledge, universals, intuition, truth and falsehood, opinion, and the limits and values of philosophy in general. The book consists of 15 short chapters of about ten pages each and we will follow this division, covering about ten pages per week. This course provides a chance to learn something in philosophy as well as to enjoy and learn good English. Bertrand Russell was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1950.
