Originally published in 1931, this book presents a concise biography of the British idealist metaphysician John McTaggart Ellis McTaggart (1866-1925). The text was largely written by the prominent political scientist Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson (1862-1932), a close friend of the subject. Abundant material from McTaggart's memoirs, letters and other writings is included, with earlier chapters covering more personal areas and later ones focusing on his philosophical approach. Ilustrative figures and notes are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in McTaggart, metaphysics and British idealism.
