Talk by Anthony Quinton
In the introduction to his recent book Human Society in Ethics and Politics Bertrand Russell wrote that he was conscious of two criticisms: firstly, that the ethical theory he holds does not entitle him to make moral judgments on political questions; secondly, that he overestimates the part played by reason in human affairs. In this talk Mr. Quinton considers the justice of these criticisms of Lord Russell's work as an ethical and social theorist.
