In the preface to this primer published in 1912 in the Home University Library of Modern Knowledge, Russell writes, ". . . I have confined myself in the main to those problems of philosophy in regard to which I thought it possible to say something positive and constructive, since merely negative criticism seemed out of place. For this reason, theory of knowledge occupies a larger space than metaphysics in the present volume, . . ."

Reformatted (and some typos corrected) from the PG plain text, compared with an Internet Archives scan of the American edition (New York, Henry Holt & Co., no date).

I just discovered (don't ask how) an error in probphil.pdf. On page 83, "a priori knowledge . . ." should be "A priori knowledge . . ." This is corrected in probphil2.pdf, attached.

Well, it's trivial; I know. If there's a more rational way of posting corrections, someone please tell me.
