John Anderson was Australia’s most important philosopher in the first half of last century, coming from Scotland as a young man and holding the chair of philosophy at Sydney University for thirty years till retirement in 1958. This is an endearing and revealing examination of his conflicted public and private life in Australia and earlier years in Scotland.
