This is a new publication of Bertrand Russell's famous book The Problems of Philosophy.
[B. Russell, The Problems of Philosophy (Henry Holt and Company, New York; Williams and Norgate, London 1912)]

The book is a concise course in philosophy for a wider audience masterfully written by one of the greatest minds of the twentieth century - a brilliant mathematician, logician, philosopher and also Laureate of the 1950 Nobel Prize for Literature.

Russell gives (in a single sentence) perhaps the best reason for the need of philosophical education:

"Philosophy, if it cannot answer so many questions as we could wish, has at least the power of asking questions which increase the interest of the world, and show the strangeness and wonder lying just below the surface even in the commonest things of daily life."
