This edition of two hitherto unpublished writings of Prof. Errol E. Harris (1908-2009). The first is an essay criticizing Benedetto Croce’s understanding of the 19th century German philosopher, G.W.F. Hegel. The second writing is a thesis, composed over a two-year period. In it Harris treats the question of how the finite human mind is able to grasp in thought the whole of the university of which it (the mind) is a part or member. The book also has a wonderful foreword by Professor James Connelly indicating its relevance to the current renaissance of idealism in England.
