Foundational Problems in Philosophy
2006 0-7734-5587-6
These volumes collect and introduce the major writings of the British/South African philosopher Arthur Ritchie Lord (1880-1941). Regarded as one of the finest minds in South African philosophy in the early twentieth century, Lord nevertheless published little during his lifetime part from his The Principles of Politics (1921) and a few short essays. The editors of these volumes bring together not only Lord’s published work, but almost all of his previously-unpublished lectures and essays.

Lord was one of a number of South African philosophers, little known outside of their own country, who had a remarkable influence not only on their students, but on social and cultural life. This volume provides critical introductions to, as well as extensive annotations on, a number of Lord’s essays, most of which were previously unpublished.
