Bertrand Russell - The Conquest of Happiness
Publication Date: March 17, 1996 | ISBN-10: 0871401622 | ISBN-13: 978-0871401625
"My purpose is to suggest a cure for the ordinary day-to-day unhappiness from which most people in civilized countries suffer, and which is all the more unbearable because, having no obvious external cause, appears inescapable."
Russell held progressive, often controversial views on social issues, including sexuality. Vigorously opposed to conventional or religious morality, he sets forth here a rationalist approach to achieving a happy life.
“Excellent. . . . Sane and forthright; should be read by every parent, teacher, minister, and Congressman in the land.” (Atlantic Monthly )
