Perhaps more than any other philosopher associated with British Idealism, Bernard Bosanquet made contributions to the study of ethics and political philosophy, logic, metaphysics, and aesthetics, and to social work and adult education. Among the issues to be addressed at this conference are those of the legacy of this idealism and its relation to philosophers outside of the idealist `school' (e.g., Russell, Wittgenstein), to philosophers of succeeding generations in Britain (e.g., Collingwood, Oakeshott, Harris), in the Anglo-American world (e.g., Royce, E. Jordan, Whitehead), and on the European continent (e.g., Croce, Gentile, Husserl), and to such disciplines as sociology, aesthetics, psychology, metaphysics, political philosophy, logic, and epistemology.
Speakers will include:
Fred Wilson, John Morrow, Timothy Sprigge, Andrew Vincent, and Leslie Armour. There will also be a number of contributed papers.
