Hello fellow Bertrand Russell fan??! I don't see his name come up on HN too often but really nice to see In Praise of Idleness mentioned. For anyone reading this who wants to consume some of his philosophy:

In Praise of Idleness: And Other Essays -

The Conquest of Happiness -

I would not recommend any compilations of philosophy. The great thing about philosophy is reading the rationales and the results, not only the results.

"Ricard+Revel - The Monk and the Philosopher"

"Socrates(/Plato) - The Allegory of the Cave"

"Plato(/Socrates/others) - Symposium"

"Bertrand Russell - The Conquest of Happiness"
