§35. John Caird and Edward Caird. I. Philosophers. Vol. 14. The Victorian Age, Part Two. The Cambridge History of ... (339 words)
In An Introduction to the Philosophy of Religion (1880), John Caird, principal of the university of Glasgow, produced a work, original in manner, but essentially Hegelian in doctrine.
The influence of Edward Caird rivalled that of his friend Green, and their teaching was in fundamental agreement.
Caird, however, had a facility of literary expression such as Green did not possess; he was, also, more inclined to attack questions by the method of tracing the historical development of thought.
Edward Caird [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy] (1257 words)
A Scottish philosopher of the latter half of the nineteenth century, Edward Caird was one of the key figures of the idealist movement that dominated British philosophy from 1870 until the mid 1920s.
Caird shows the spiritual sense of humanity as at first dominated by the object, but constrained by its own abstractions to swing around so as to fall under the sway of the subject.
In general, Caird's views on religion were importantly related to his understanding of ethics, and Caird borrows from Hegel (and Goethe) the ethical idea of self sacrifice, or 'dying to live,' which was to have an important role in the work of Bosanquet.
