Psychology of Philosophers

Alexander Herzberg
  • The Psychology of Philosophers (London: Kegan Paul, 1929).

    J. O. Urmson,
  • "The Interpretation of the Moral Philosophy of J. S. Mill," Philosophical Quarterly 3 (1953); 33-39.
    "It is a matter which should be of great interest to those who study the psychology of philosophers that the theories of some great philosophers of the past are studied with the most patient and accurate scholarship, and those of others are so burlesqued and travestied by critics and commentators that it is hard to believe that their works are ever read at all. Amongst those who suffer most in this way John Stuart Mill is an outstanding example."
