Ali A. Rizvi: Reading Bootlegged Bertrand Russell in Pakistan

Baggage Claim

His book, "The Atheist Muslim: A Journey from Religion to Reason" has earned him death threats that make a return to his childhood homes impossible. He's known as The Atheist Muslim to some. For others, he's the Secular Jihadist. Ali A. Rizvi was born and raised in a bubble inside a bubble: in a middle-class liberal family in ultra-conservative Saudi Arabia (he also spent time in Pakistan and Libya). Today, he lives in Toronto, Canada with his daughter. His writing on secularism, jihad and rationality has appeared in The Huffington Post, CNN and more. He's been a guest on The Rubin Report, The Joe Rogan Experience, The Saad Truth and other podcasts, and he co-hosts Secular Jihadists. Will Conway and Ali Rizvi discuss the psychology of extremism (on both sides), the reverse culture shock of emigrating to Canada, Islam, standing up to the Twitter mob, cancel culture, the alignment between science and faith, and developing compassion for beliefs different from your own. This is Ali A. Rizvi's full interview on the Baggage Claim podcast: travel stories no one tells. New interviews twice a month. In the meantime, Baggage Claim also has plenty of immersive travel stories designed to transport you to another world - those come out whenever they're ready.Text POD to (332) 877-9540 to join a wonderful community of travelers and definitely get a call from host Will Conway.

Bertrand Russell (1872 — 1970), Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889 — 1951)

The Experience of Thinking

Philosophy and science have a common underlying methodology with Russell. All knowledge is proved by the methods of science. As a mathematician he looks for reliable knowledge based on outer experience freed from all subjectivity. The stuff of mental and physical worlds is the same. There is no big comprehensive system. Atomism replaces any organic view in the sense that understanding one part explains other parts by inference. Otherwise his philosophy is a radical investigation of social and political questions. The work of Wittgenstein, this extraordinary thinker challenges accepted views in many disciplines. Impossible to summarize in a meaningful way. The interrelationship between language, thought and world establishes the basis of what can be known and not known. That philosophical statements are mostly meaningless and that philosophy is not a theory but an activity give a taste of his concerns. Meaning in language comes from its use, not, as is often supposed, from a source exterior to the word or sentence. His writings also propose new understanding of ethics, art and religion.
