 A Quarterly Review of Psychology and Philosophy

Edited by G. E. Moore

1930-1947 - London and Edinburgh - Macmillan and Co; Thomas Nelson and Sons

 9" by 6"




A good run of the British peer-reviewed academic journal, Mind, published on behalf of the Mind Association, which is dedicated to the question of whether psychology could be a legitimate natural science.

New series.

Mind was established in 1876 by the Scottish philosopher Alexander Bain (University of Aberdeen) with his colleague and former student George Croom Robertson (University College London) as editor-in-chief. With the death of Robertson in 1891, George Stout took over the editorship and began a 'New Series'. The current editor is Thomas Baldwin (University of York). In the first issue, Robertson wrote;"Now, if there were a journal that set itself to record all advances in psychology, and gave encouragement to special researches by its readiness to publish them, the uncertainty hanging over the subject could hardly fail to be dispelled. Either psychology would in time pass with general consent into the company of the sciences, or the hollowness of its pretensions would be plainly revealed. Nothing less, in fact, is aimed at in the publication of Mind than to procure a decision of this question as to the scientific standing of psychology." Many famous essays have been published in Mind by such figures as Charles Darwin, J. M. E. McTaggart and Noam Chomsky. Three of the most famous, arguably, are Lewis Carroll's "What the Tortoise Said to Achilles" (1895), Bertrand Russell's "On Denoting" (1905), and Alan Turing's "Computing Machinery and Intelligence" (1950), in which he first proposed the Turing test.

Each volume is in its original publishers' paper wraps.

George Edward Moore was an English philosopher. He was, with Bertrand Russell, Ludwig Wittgenstein, and (before them) Gottlob Frege, one of the founders of the analytic tradition in philosophy. Along with Russell, he led the turn away from idealism in British philosophy, and became well known for his advocacy of common sense concepts, his contributions to ethics, epistemology, and metaphysics, and "his exceptional personality and moral character." He was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Cambridge, highly influential among (though not a member of) the Bloomsbury Group, and the editor of these influential journals between 1921 and 1947.


In original publishers' paper wraps. Externally, chipping to the extremities of each volume, with sunning to the spines and extremities. Slight marks to the wraps. No. 156's front wrap is detached, and is lacking the rear wrap. Slight loss to the rear wrap of No. 155, as well as a large closed tear to the front wrap of No. 193. Neat ink signature to the front wrap of No.s 155 and 156. Loss to the front wrap of No. 186. Evidence of past worming to the last few leaves and rear wrap of No. 197. Internally, all volumes are generally firmly bound, although with some straining to No. 190, No. 195, and No. 197. Bright throughout, with many leaves that are unopened. Generally clean, although with some occasional instances of light foxing. Overall: VERY GOOD with some of the earlier volumes being GOOD.
