QotD: "Libraries gave us power..."


"As a teenager, I also picked out Bertrand Russell’s History of 'Western Philosophy' from the local public library, which was one of the great inspirations for me. The library, that is, rather than the book. I think it’s the route out of suburbia for a lot of people. It opened up different sorts of reading for me."
        ~ philosopher Nigel Warburton interviewed by the Five Books website.
