The schedule describes BR as follows: "More than any creative man of our time, Bertrand Russell has made science and philosophy an open book to the general public. Bertrand Russell is a modern prophet. Had he lived during the Middle Ages he would have been burnt at the stake before he could issue a volume of Collected Skeptical Essays."
