George Stuart Fullerton, a psychologist and philosopher who lived and worked around the turn of the 20th century, attempts to give as clear and simple a treatment of philosophy as possible. He sets out to define the word itself, how it differs from common and scientific thinking, the general problems it tackles, the various approaches that have risen out of those problems, its relations to other sciences, and its values and practical uses. The book is certainly academic but plain spoken and even-keeled. Mark Moseley’s delivery of the text enforces this sense of structure, his clear and even speech maintaining a sense of clarity in this audio tutorial on a topic that can so often feel overly complex and esoteric.
This classic explains American philosopher George Stuary Fullerton's realistic views on philosophy. Fullerton, born in India, spent time at the University of Pennsylvania, Yale Divinity School, Columbia University, and the University of Vienna. He was president of the American Psychological Association in 1896.
