Anderson, John
(1893–1962)
Scottish philosopher who was a professor at Sydney from 1927 until 1958. Anderson was the most influential philosopher practising in Australia in his time, both professionally and in the social and political debates of the day. He held a modern world view based on scientific realism and materialism, atheism, and empiricism. His ethics and politics were based upon a fierce concern for independence. His essays were published as Studies in Empirical Philosophy (1962) and his writings on education as Education and Inquiry (1980).
