Awesome collection of Bertrand Russell's essays, showcasing his incredible diversity of thought and interests. Political philosophy, economics, international diplomacy, science, history of philosophy, morality, religion and spirituality, mathematics, logic, etc etc, all of these are showcased in this collection. I'd only read an essay of his here an essay of his there before, so this was a wonderful deep dive into his works.
Obviously in a collection of essays there will be some that are better than others. Personally I had a bit of a harder time with the section of his essays about mathematics, it was above my head so harder to follow and understand. Also a few weaker essays and pieces that are a bit fluffy light on substance or one-dimensional, but those were absolutely the exception.
But overall most of these essays are very accessible and readable. I love his methodology of thinking, the framework is built upon a deep reliance on logic and critical reasoning techniques. He has a clarity of thought and explanation, and an ability to perceive the layers beneath the layers, the subtleties of the issues, that is really quite extraordinary. Even if one doesn't agree with his final conclusions one can't help but admire his methodology and critical thinking skills. It is instructive and inspiring.
