Editors of anthologies from the works of eminent thinkers are not often so fortunate as to have their work approved by the man himself. We are also grateful to the following for their generous help and valuable assistance: Karen Bents, Sarah Merrill, Lonna Johnson and Morton White; our wives for their indulgence, encouragement and keen editorial appraisal; and the stas of our publishers for their full co-operation. We add one rather unusual acknowledgement.
We bow to each other at a distance of almost two thousand miles. Our most enjoyable collaboration in an equal distribution of labour has been done entirely by correspondence by two editors who have never met.
All has been jointly done so that we jointly face and share the charge of errors of omission and commission which is usually the reward of any anthologist. Messrs Appleton-Century-Crofts, Inc. Messrs E. Haldeman-Julius Publications Harpers Magazine. Knopf, Inc.

I owe innumerable happy hours to the reading of Russells works, something which I cannot say of any other contemporary scientic writer, with the exception of Thorstein Veblen. He constitutes a fortunate example showing that a philosopher may owe his success to clarity and cogency, to painstaking analysis and the renunciation of the mysterious language of oracles.
The ourishing condition of present-day semiotic is a sucient testimony to the fertility of Russells ideas. Leibniz acquired his title to nobility by attering powerful princes and church ocials and by defending their feudal privileges; whereas Russell, though born an aristocrat, has always defended the democratic tradition and courageously opposed political and church authoritarianism at the cost of the very type of worldly success which was so dear to Leibniz, philip p.
Russell has not said the last word on these matters [philosophy of science]; but he has certainly inspired a great multitude of students to try to say a better one. If the example of his own splendid devotion to independent thinking counts for anything, it is safe to believe that he would not prefer to have a dierent estimate placed upon his eorts, ernest nagel, ibid. Bertrand Russells philosophical writings are delightful reading.
Whatever may be Russells place in philosophy, his literary writings certainly deserve a. By this statement I do not mean to belittle Russells contribution to philosophy. No contemporary writer has done more to stimulate interest in philosophy than Russell and we are all indebted to him. His contribution to logic, perhaps, overshadows his contributions to other branches of philosophy because of its massiveness. But he has enriched brilliantly and suggestively every branch of philosophy. I believe there is little of importance in present-day philosophizing which is not derived from him.
The post-Russellians are all propter-Russellians. His writings combine profundity with wit, trenchant thinking with literary excellence, honesty and clarity with kindliness and wisdom.
