About the Author

Peter H. Denton is Assistant Professor in the Departments of History, Philosophy, and Religious Studies at the University of Winnipeg.


"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
