Benjamin Apthorp Gould Fuller

Benjamin Apthorp Gould Fuller (March 9, 1879, Brookline, MA–1956) was a philosopher, and author of A History of Philosophy.

Benjamin Apthorp Gould Fuller was the son of Horace Williams Fuller and Emily Gorham Carter. He prepped at Roxbury Latin School in Roxbury, Massachusetts, and received his B.A., A.M., and Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1900, 1902, and 1906, respectively. His Ph.D. thesis on "The Problem of Evil in Plotinus" was published in 1912. In 1902 he matriculated at Christ Church, Oxford, and received his B.Sc. in 1905.

Fuller taught philosophy at Harvard from 1906 to 1910. In 1910 he traveled around the world, visiting Kashmire, northern and central India, Assam, Burma, Java, and Japan, developing "the habit of never taking a ticket further than the next stop, and came to the realization that life is much too short to hurry."

In 1923 Henry Holt & Co. published his History of Greek Philosophy, Thales to Democritus.

In 1924 he began teaching at the Graduate School of the University of Cincinnati.

Fuller was a president of the American Philosophical Association.

Famous quotes containing the words fuller, gould and/or benjamin:

    With foxes we must play the fox.
    —Thomas Fuller (1654–1734)

    [Women’s] apparent endorsement of male supremacy is ... a pathetic striving for self- respect, self-justification, and self-pardon. After fifteen hundred years of subjection to men, Western woman finds it almost unbearable to face the fact that she has been hoodwinked and enslaved by her inferiors—that the master is lesser than the slave.
    —Elizabeth Gould Davis (b. 1910)

    Bourgeois existence is the regime of private affairs ... and the family is the rotten, dismal edifice in whose closets and crannies the most ignominious instincts are deposited. Mundane life proclaims the total subjugation of eroticism to privacy.
    —Walter Benjamin (1892–1940)
