Russell, The Problems of Philosophy : Chapters IX-XII [ Russell, Bertrand.The Problems of Philosophy, pp. 48-67]. The entire work can be found online here: Bertrand Russell, The Problems of Philosophy.
For example, in Week Three, you will be summarizing Chapters IX-XII in The Problems of Philosophy, and then you will look for how what he says there links up with, adds to, or even conflicts with the philosophical views and ideas of Aristotle, Kant (again), Mill, and Sartre. This week may be more challenging because Russell’s concerns reside mainly in epistemology and metaphysics and these authors discuss foundations of morality, so you may have to dig a little deeper into their thinking for this one.
After completing this week’s assigned chapters of Russell’s The Problems of Philosophy as well as the other required readings for this week, first, summarize what you learned from reading Russell this week. Then, your main goal in this assignment beyond the summary is to tie together any theories, themes, concepts, important ideas, arguments, important observations, etc. you discover in Russell’s work and the particular philosophical views and the general content covered in the other readings. For example, in Week Two, you will be summarizing Chapters V-VIII in The Problems of Philosophy, and then you will look for how what he says there links up with, adds to, or even conflicts with the philosophical views and ideas of Locke, Berkeley, Hume, Kant, Nagel, Jackson, and Searle. Much of Russell’s discussion draws heavily on the work of Berkeley and Hume in these chapters, so they might be the focus of your comparison or commentary.
