This volume presents an analysis of all the major works by F.S.C. Northrop, viewed by many as an outstanding thinker, teacher, scholar, and author of nine books and a list of articles and book reviews that fill a 16-page bibliography. It seeks to reveal the breadth of his mind by showing the progression from his first book on the philosophy of science, to subsequent books on logic, East-West philosophy, political science, sociological jurisprudence, philosophical anthropology, and legal and ethical philosophy. Northrop had original things to say about symbolic logic, art, jurisprudence, the is-ought problem, philosophy of language, theology, history of philosophy, mathematics, science, world peace, anthropology, cybernetics, neurophysiology, religions of the world, and even baseball. The study also contains an extensive bibliography of Northrop in print, and a short and loving reminiscence by one of Northrop's most famous pupils, Adolf Grnnbaum, Andrew Mellon Professor of Philosophy, Research Professor of Psychiatry, and Chairman of the Center for Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh.
