    805 thoughts on “What I Believe

    • My thoughts about the roles of faith and religion in mankind's life are opposite to Russell's, but reading this man always gives me a great joy. This book is mainly related to sources and methods for a good life. Russell thinks that the scientific education is the best weapon with which we can transform impulsive, fearful and timid children to loving, humanistic and courageous adults. Isn't that admirable: "A good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge."

    • هذا الكتاب يحوي مقالات تختصر بشكل بسيط وواضح أفكار وتوجهات المفكر برتراند راسل، أعجبني اختيار المترجم للمقالات وجودة ترجمته لها


    • Incredibly good well written set of essays that flow together. If you are a human being and have your basic needs met and have time to reflect about yourself and the nature of being human, these essays should be required reading. 'Love with knowledge' is our guide for morality. The Euthyprho dilemma explained in terms of God's fiat is the first time I've ever really understood it.I still hear the special pleading arguments which were outlined in this book used by people today even after they hav [...]


    • وكما قال أينشتاين: أنا أدين بساعات من السعادة لا تعدّ ولا تحصى لقراءتي أعمال راسل رغم كون الكتاب فلسفيّ بالدرجة الأولى، ودي تجربتي الأولى مع عمل فلسفي، فأنا كنت مبسوط وأنا بقرأ. الكتاب أسلوبه جميل، واختيارات الموضوعات والمقالات حلوة، وترجمة عدي عظيمة، بسبب اسم عدي على الكتا [...]


    • “What I believe” is a fairly small book in size, but vastly beneficial. Like the titles suggests, Bertrand Russell explores his wide and most profound beliefs. Not only religiously, but also economically and socially. I have to say that it is hard to disagree with the man. He has a way of projecting his views in a way that is both simple and effective. His views are to be studied by men of expertise. Meanwhile, by a simple contemplation, one can simply see where he comes from. For example hi [...]


    • This essay was only 40 pages long, but in that 40 pages Bertrand Russell managed to pack in lots of thought provoking ideas. Since it was a library book, I felt duty bound to make notes of some of his more noteworthy quotes. I can see why this book made the establishment so unhappy. He turns lots of ideas that we take on board so uncritically and makes you question them. It is not just religion that he has in his sights, but also morality, our treatment of criminals and education. Whether you ul [...]


    • 'What I Believe' is a remarkable essay on humanism and personal philosophies of Bertrand Russell. Originally published in 1925, it's just as relevant today. His simple yet elegant style should be a guide for anyone interested in disseminating clear ideas and sound opinions. Russell, in this elegant paragraph sums up his idea of what constitutes a life well-lived:My view is this:The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. Knowledge and love are both indefinitely extensible; the [...]



    • ثلاث مقالات طويلة للفيلسوف واسع التأثير، يحكي فيها عن معتقداته الشخصية، والأسباب التي قادته لها.الكتاب بمجمله هو عن نظرته السلبية للنصرانية (المقال الثاني بأكمله هو بعنوان "لماذا لست نصرانياً")، مقابل إيمانه بالأخلاق البشرية الإيجابية التي لا تنبع من تشريع إلهي أو كتاب سما [...]


    • لطالما كنت من المعجبين بفكر برتراند راسل الذي كرس حياته للدفاع عن حرية التعبير وحرية الإيمان وعن العقلانية، لذا فأنا سعيدة جداً باطلاعي على هذا الكتاب الذي يتضمن مجموعة من المقالات التي كتبها راسل لغير المختصين دون أن ينقص ذلك من قيمتها الفكرية.أمنح الكتاب أربع نجمات، وليس [...]


    • راسل بأسلوبه العقلاني الرصين و العبقري جدا ، يسيطر على عقل القارئ حول الاسئلة التي من الممكن أن يثورها طرحه ، عادةً تجد أجوبتها في الاسطر القادمة .


    • This essay was published in 1925, in which Bertrand Russell examines what he believes in, one of the most enjoyable reads I have encountered it’s an essential read for everyone who likes to think outside the conventional way of thinking that societies and religions force us to follow, the essay simply address our logic in thinking about some fundamental elements in our lives, it advises the reader to follow common sense and break away from irrationality. in the preface Bertrand Russell writes [...]

    • I got this both because it is a fast read and I could get to know a little about the mind of this famous philosopher and logician who is known for his work in mathematical logic and analytic philosophy. In case I liked it, I would read others from him. The result is, I already ordered 5 others of his books.This was intelligent, thought provokin, lucid and with a sharp and crystal clear argumentation. Not to mention the fact of how much this was ahead of his time.I wasn't expecting anything less [...]


    • كتاب مدهش بالرغم من إن عدد الأراء اللي اتفقت معاه فيها قليلة جدًا، ووجدت من وجهة نظري كمية كبيرة جدا من المغالطات، طيب ليه مدهش؟الكتاب مدهش عشان راسل بيتلك مبصراحة ووضوح شديدين مفيش أي لف ودوران بيلخص أفكار أساسية في المفاهيم الليبرالية واللاأدرية أو الإلحادية بشكل واضح جد [...]


    • It offers a nice view of that society should aim to be like. It is encouraging to see that we did make some progress since this essay was published, but it is quite sad to see that many things are still the same.


    • The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. “It is we who create value and our desires which confer value. In this realm we are kings, and we debase our kingship if we bow down to Nature. It is for us to determine the good life, not for Nature - not even for Nature personified as God.” "That is why love is better than hate because it brings harmony instead of conflict into the desires of the persons concerned. Two people between whom there is love succeed or fail together, [...]


    • I am a false book reader, in the sense that the main reason why I read books is not because I enjoy the simple and fundamental feeling it gives to most readers - the feeling of travelling to a different world; the true journey of plunging into a universe that is not our own. Now, I immensely enjoy journeys, but the main reason I read books is because of the ideas within them. I praise ideas higher than anything else - above the thrill of discovering whether a character will die in the next page, [...]


    • One of the great things about our anarchist approach here on Ground Control is that it gives us the opportunity to stay creative with our columns. After all, isn’t pop culture consumption supposed to be creative, and aren’t we allowed to stay fresh? So, it is with great pleasure that we’re going to be doing something a little bit different with I Wanna Be Literated! (and hopefully not the only time) and do an entire series on the writings of Bertrand Russell.Russell was a world renown phil [...]


    • كتاب صغير مش كبير ويخلص في 3 ساعات بقراءة متأنية بطيئة كحالي البائس.ثلاثة مقالات يتحدث فيها راسل ـ كملحد ـ عما يؤمن ومالا يؤمن به ونظرته لكيان الله وكينونته وهيئته. واستخدام هذه الهيئة في إهمال العلم وبالأخص الفلك والفيزياء على حد قولهما يميز برتراند راسل عن باقي ملحدين هذا ا [...]


    • الكتاب قِيَمٌ و أضاف لمعرفتي الكثير و تباعاً غَيَّرَ بعض تصوراتي عن الحياة بَيْدَ أن تقييمي له شحيح لا بسبب محتوى الكتاب بل لان المثلب الريئس هو ترجمة الكتاب. لقد أعاشني المترجم في أنين فكري بائس كيما أفهم القصد من معظم الجمل . أنصح بقراءة الكتاب لكن بترجمة أخرى ، بالاخص الكت [...]



    • simply amazing. I adore Russell and this tiny little one on his thoughts is as great as every other book of his ! highly recommended !



    • دافع الفيلسوف البريطاني الليبرالي واللاأدري برتراند راسل عن حرية التعبير مهما كانت الآراء المعبر عنها، وعن العقلانية في التفكير حيث رفض الإيمان بأي قضية لا تدعمها الادلة بشكل عقلاني. و بسبب أراءه المختلفة عن السائد تم فصله من عمله بإعتباره غير مناسب للتدريس الجامعي لما يحم [...]


    • مجموعة مقالات لراسل عن الدين والتعليم وغيرها اعجبني الجزء المتعلق باللا أدريه


    • From the heights of my limited readings, I would say that in this essay, Russell is very romantic. This coupled with his ease in expressing himself and the elegance of his prose makes for an engaging piece.I wished for more incisiveness than oratory skill, although it would have ill suited the tone of the work, which is undeniably warm. For example, at some point he argues that religion stems from fear, which he seems to despise thoroughly in all forms. I found his approach to death full of path [...]


    • Before World War II, Russell taught at the University of Chicago, later moving on to Los Angeles to lecture at the UCLA Department of Philosophy. He was appointed professor at the City College of New York (CCNY) in 1940, but after a public outcry the appointment was annulled by a court judgment that pronounced him "morally unfit" to teach at the college due to his opinions—notably those relating to sexual morality, detailed in Marriage and Morals (1929). According to Russell, he was awarded th [...]


    • "I believe that when I die, I will rot." Bertrand Russell absolutely kicks ass. He is truly dreamy. <3 He starts by stating there is no reason to waste time dwelling on gods since there is no evidence. No point yo.About humankind's supposed upcoming immortality, he says: our mental life IS our life so it ceases when bodily life ceases. Fear is the core of religious dogma, fear of nature. Immortality removes the terror of death and this is why it has become so popular. Prayers, in turn, give u [...]
