First published in 1912, this classic introduction to the subjects of philosophical inquiry has proved invaluable to the formal student and general reader alike. It has Russell’s views, succinctly stated, on material reality and idealism, knowledge by acquaintance and by description, induction, knowledge of general principles and of universals, intuitive knowledge, truth and falsehood, the distinction between knowledge, error, and probable opinion, and the limits and value of philosophical knowledge.

This impression includes a foreword Russell wrote in 12924 for a German translation, in which he explains how some of his views have changed since he wrote “The Problems of Philosophy”.
