About the Author:
Bernard Bosanquet – (July 14, 1848 – February 8, 1923) was an English philosopher and an influential figure on matters of political and social policy in late nineteenth and early twentieth century Britain. Educated at Oxford by Arnold Toynbee and Thomas Hill Green, Bosanquet helped to revive the idealism of Hegel in England, and to apply its principles to social and political problems. He lectured at Oxford (1871–81) and at St. Andrews (1903–8), and spent much of his life involved in social work with poor communities in the city, through the Charity Organization Society (COS), which his older brother Charles had founded.
