I’ve decided this year to read or reread as much of Bertrand Russell’s work as possible. I’ve been reading The History of Western Philosophy and The Problems of Philosophy (the latter of which is now public domain), and have been trying to digest On Denoting by reading it every few weeks. With this in mind, I was excited to recently find a set of several articles written by Douglas Anele for Vanguard Online on Russell. They serve as a good biographical introduction, and also provide a bit more information than average on Russell’s view of sexual ethics and religion. Perhaps most interesting is that the essays are written from a Nigerian perspective. They’re certainly worth reading.
