Reviews

"Unlike today's postmodernist thinkers, Russell was much less of a fence sitter on policy matters of his day; his lack of defining truth did not inhibit him from taking strong stands. This is a point that is too often overlooked in the contemporary intellectual scene, and Denton does his greatest service by reminding us of it." - Steve Fuller, author of The Governance of Science: Ideology and the Future of the Open Society
