Bertrand Russell is considered the most passionate rationalist of his time. He was a highly principled and intelligent aristocrat with a liberal legacy spanning back to his grandfather, Prime Minister Lord John Russell and his godfather, John Stuart Mill. He was an atheist at a time when very few shared his viewpoint. He exhibited the bravery to speak his mind, honestly and fearlessly, a characteristic very rare at any time.
