Russell: Metaphysics

“Metaphysics, or the attempt to conceive the world as a whole by means of thought, has been developed, from the first, by the union and conflict of two very different human impulses, the one urging men towards mysticism, the other urging them towards science.” (p. 15) #Russell #metaphysics #mysticism #science
