Foreword to the 1962 Publication

This book is published as part of a commemoration of the work of John Anderson, for more than thirty years Challis Professor of Philosophy in the University of Sydney. Anderson's chief philosophical papers, hitherto printed only in journals, are now brought together and reprinted along with two newly-written papers and an introductory essay by Professor John Passmore, a former student of Anderson's.

The publication of the volume has been made possible by the generosity of a number of contributors to an Anderson Testimonial Fund, and has been considerably assisted by a special grant given by the Australian Humanities Research Council.

Acknowledgments for permission to reprint certain papers, noted in the Bibliography, are made to the Mind Association, the Arostotelian Society, the Australasian Association for Philosophy, and the Australian Humanities Research Council.
