Fundamentos de filosofía by Bertrand Russell

By Bertrand Russell

Con lucidez y claridad, el filósofo Bertrand Russell, Premio Nobel de Literatura de 1950 y una de las grandes mentes del siglo XX, expone su specific visión del mundo, desde los angeles condición humana hasta los angeles física.

Fundamentos de filosofía (1927) period una obra pensada para el gran público estadounidense que, sin embargo, despertó una aguerrida controversia en los círculos académicos. Su tesis clave afirma que los angeles humanidad es el instrumento mediante el cual adquirimos nuestro conocimiento del universo (o, según Gorgias, «el hombre es los angeles medida de todas las cosas»). De ahí, surgen varias cuestiones: ¿de qué maneras adquiere conocimiento el ser humano?, ¿es posible los angeles formulación de leyes universales?, ¿cómo podemos distinguir verdad y opinión? Todas las preguntas que plantea Russell abren las puertas al que es, al fin y al cabo, el más sugestivo de los interrogantes: ¿puede el ser humano llegar a conocerlo todo?

«La claridad, seguridad e imparcialidad que [Russell] ha aplicado a los problemas lógicos, filosóficos y humanos no tienen rival.»
Albert Einstein

«Entre los pocos en quienes los angeles inspiration se ha manifestado en los angeles propia carne y a quienes los angeles situación histórica de los angeles humanidad ha transformado de maestros en profetas está Bertrand Russell.»
Erich Fromm
