First edition. 8vo. 285, [3] pp. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, top edge in blue, fore edge untrimmed, dust jacket (some very faint spotting to endpapers; jacket edge worn with some minor chipping to tips of spine panel, small area of faint marking to front panel, two tiny punch holes to rear panel, notwithstanding a very good example of the rare dust jacket).

Written at the peak of Russell's popular output during the interwar years, The Scientific Outlook combines history of science with philosophical scrutiny of the scientific worldview, culminating in cautionary note on the potential implications of a future in which science supersedes social and political values.
