§ 14. George Croom Robertson

George Croom Robertson, professor in University college, London, was in general sympathy with Mill’s school of thought, tempered, however, by wide knowledge and appreciation of other developments, including those of recent philosophy. Circumstances prevented his producing much literary work beyond a few articles and an admirable monograph on Hobbes (1886). He is remembered not only for these, and for his lectures, some of which have been published (1896), but, also, for his skilful and successful work as editor of Mind during the first sixteen years of its existence. Mind was the first English journal devoted to psychology and philosophy, and its origin in 1876 is a landmark in the history of British philosophy.
