Russell takes 5-Year Post in Philadelphia
Will Lecture on Social and Cultural Philosophy
When he finishes his Harvard lectures in January, Bertrand Russell will settle down at last to a long-term teaching job with no restrictions at the Barnes Foundation for art study in Philadelphia.
"The appointment is quite ideal from my point of view," the philosopher declared last night. "The salary is the same as that offered by the College of the City of New York, and the duties much lighter." His lectures will deal with philosophy in relation to social history and culture from the time of the ancient Greeks.
Since he and his wife have recently been doing research for a book on this subject. Russell said, "the lectures will fit in with the plans we have already made."
