Social Cohesion & Human Nature – Bertrand Russell

Political and social activism occupied much of Bertrand Russell‘s time for most of his life, which makes his prodigious and seminal writing on a wide range of technical and non-technical subjects all the more remarkable. Russell remained politically active almost to the end of his life, writing to and exhorting world leaders and lending his name to various causes. He was noted for saying “No one can sit at the bedside of a dying child and still believe in God“.
