Introducing the book The World I Know by Bertrand Russell
Russell is a prime example of a Western wanderer. He was raised in the lap of Western capitalism and was from the affluent classes of society, but he hated their actions, so he advocated Russian socialism, but after a while he realized that their method, like that of Western capitalism, was unsuccessful. And failed.

Christianity did not appeal to him either. Russell went to China for a while and became interested in the life of the Asian people, but the confusion did not leave him.

He did not feel any belief in socialism, capitalism, the white race and Western civilization. Bertrand Russell died on February 2, 1970, in Wales. The World Book I Know is one of his books that talks about this topic and expresses his views on the above topics.

Bertrand Russell (May 18, 1872 – February 2, 1970) was a twentieth-century English philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, sociologist, Nobel laureate, and peace activist. In his early teens, Russell began to study works by Percy Be Shell, which changed the course of his life.

He then attended Trinity College, Cambridge, where he studied mathematics and philosophy. He discovered the “Russell Paradox” in 1901 and became a member of the Royal Society of British Sciences seven years later.
