The book An Outline of Philosophy has been translated by Prof. Dr. Abdul Matin.
The book An Outline Of Philosophy of Bertrand Russell has been translated by Prof. Dr. Abdul Matin Saheb as Darshaner Ruprekha. He is a Professor in the Department of Philosophy, Dhaka University. The name of Bertrand Russell, the author of the translated book as a thinker and author, is well known not only in Bangladesh but all over the world. The number of books he has written, large and small, is close to 70, and 19 of them are generally considered to be books of pure philosophy. The date of publication of the translated book is 1927 AD. Since then, at least seven of his philosophical books have been published. However, the peculiarity of the book in question is that it gives a brief overview of almost all of its original philosophical views.
In his long philosophical career, Russell has changed his views more than once. However, he did not deviate from the views he had expressed in the text after the progress of the philosophy of the world and human knowledge, the goal and power of the limit, the morality and the ultimate desire of human life. So a central role of this book is undeniable in terms of knowing and understanding the philosopher Russell.
Despite being deeply involved with the linguistic and analytical mainstream philosophies of the twentieth century, Russell did not view philosophy as merely linguistic analysis. He has accepted the traditional purpose of realizing the nature of the world and life as the main purpose of Philosophy theoretically and practically. While acknowledging the journey of scientific philosophy and the practice of philosophy as scientific knowledge, he felt that there was no difference between scientific knowledge and philosophical knowledge in the final stage. He is basically an empiricist and a realist in knowledge. In imagining the nature of the world, he preached neutral monotheism between materialism and spiritualism. In his philosophy of life, he accepts happiness as the main goal and love as the basic moral motivation, denies all external differences between religion, race and caste, and is the messenger of a benevolent cosmopolitanism.
One of the special advantages of this translation is that it gives a clear reflection of his views. At the beginning of the last chapter of the book he gives a summary of the previous discussion. Needless to say, naturally the reader will read the first chapter at the beginning where the author gives a picture of the purpose and problems of the philosophy. But before entering into the other chapters, I hope that the dear reader will benefit once he takes a look at the summary of the last chapter.
In the last paragraph of the first chapter, Russell hopes: “Perhaps modern science will give us the strength to look at philosophical problems in a new light.” So, naturally, there are many aspects of modern natural sciences, mathematics and modern psychology in Russell’s writings that it is convenient to have a little acquaintance with these sciences in order to fully understand them. However, even though Russell started his journey with science, he was not bound by science. It appears, however, that although behavioral psychology was given considerable importance, he ultimately rejected it as a comprehensive explanation of human knowledge, and in spite of his sincere faith and respect for physics, favored more emphasis on psychology than on physics.
Russell was born in 1872 in Manmouthshare, England, and died on February 3, 1970 in England. 100 famous Duke family for him. Her grandfather was Lord John Russell, one of the prime ministers of Queen Victoria. Russell used his long time nowadays to be fulfilled. There is no theoretical problem which seems to be accessible to the logician and philosopher then he sheds fundamental and important light. In his last years he wrote two story books. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1950 for his literary work. Besides, it would be difficult to find a complex international problem that survives from his youth to his death.
One of his fans commented on Russell’s genius, versatility, and versatility in his writings: “Russell wrote on so many different subjects that there is probably no one among the living who knows all of them – except for Russell himself – who is a complete and impeccable figure in his writings.” The translation of this author’s book is supposed to be a little technical, but in spite of the well-known merits of Russell’s work, his statement seems vague in some places. The translator has tried to write as accurately as possible.
This translation is part of the Bangla Academy’s plan to develop some textbooks on philosophy in 1972-73. This book was completed in 1977.
This book is quite acceptable to the readers and there is no doubt that this book will be considered as an invaluable book for those who are doing research on Bengali language and literature.
