Why Men Fight

By Bertrand Russell


Mathematician and philosopher Bertrand Russell was prompted to write and publish Why Men Fight (in 1917) as he and the world were experiencing the Great War. Russell shares his thoughts on how to end war—not just between states, but also between classes and individuals. He deals with the following topics in this work:

  1. The Principles of Growth
  2. The State
  3. War as an Institution
  4. Property
  5. Education
  6. Marriage and the Population Question
  7. Religion and Churches
  8. What We Can Do
