Excerpt from The Philosophy of Plotinus, Vol. 1 of 2: The Gifford Lectures at St. Andrews 1917-1918

The Gifford Lectureships have given many English and some foreign scholars the pleasantest of introductions to the life of the Scottish Universities. The unique charm of St. Andrews is but half realised by those who only know it as the Mecca of the golfer. Those who have had the privilege of being admitted to the academic society of the ancient city will understand why Andrew Lang confessed that even Oxford had a successful rival in his affections. The present writer will always look back upon his two visits to St. Andrews as the brightest interlude in four sad years.

It is my agreeable duty to acknowledge the help which I have received from several friends. I have been encouraged and gratified by the interest in my lectures shown by those two distinguished Platonists, Professors Burnet and Taylor, of St. Andrews. For several years I have received the kindest sympathy in my philosophical studies from Lord Haldane. Three Oxford friends have been good enough to read my book in manuscript or in the proof-sheets: Captain Ross, Fellow of Oriel; the Rev. H. H. Williams, D.D., Principal of St. Edmund Hall; and Mr. C. C. J. Webb, Fellow of Magdalen and at present Gifford Lecturer at Aberdeen.

Excerpt from The Philosophy of Plotinus, Vol. 1 of 2: The Gifford Lectures at St. Andrews 1917-1918 This kind of philosophy may not be in fashion just now but when we see what havoc popular subjectivism has made of religious phil osophy, and how it has encouraged a recrudescence of superstition, we may be glad to return to Plato and his successors.
