of the editor

Professor Anderson has, during the last quarter century, exercised a powerful influence on philosophical thought in Australia, and especially in Sydney. But since nearly all his published writings have been articles or reviews in The Australasian Journal of Psychology and Philosophy, contemporary European and American philosophers have learned little, if anything, of his views. Nor have their activities, during this quarter century, occasioned any conspicuous reactions in him. None the less there are certain interesting parallels to be found between some of his and some of their ideas, as well as certain equally interesting divergences.
