‘PERHAPS if ideas and words were distinctly weighed and duly considered, they would afford us another sort of logic and critic than what we have hitherto been acquainted with’ (john Locke, An Essay concerning Hm/nan Understanding, Bk. IV, chap. 21, § 4). It is this new sort of ‘logic and critic’, foreseen over two centuries ago by John Locke, which philosophers of the movement represented in this collection of essays have been working to produce. This movement of philosophic opinion has been taking shape and growing in influence in the universities of the British Isles since the beginning of this century. It has gained momentum until now it dominates the philosophy faculties of Oxford, Cambridge, and London, is powerfully represented elsewhere in the United Kingdom, and even has outposts overseas, especially in Australasia and the United States. But in spite of this steady progress inside the philosophic world, almost nothing is known of these developments by that general educated and interested public which has no direct contact with academic philosophy.
