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.

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:

    Deceive not thyself by over-expecting happiness in the married estate.... Remember the nightingales which sing only some months in the spring, but commonly are silent when they have hatched their eggs, as if their mirth were turned into care for their young ones.
    —Thomas Fuller (1608–1661)

    A separation situation is different for adults than it is for children. When we were very young children, a physical separation was interpreted as a violation of our inalienable rights....As we grew older, the withdrawal of love, whether that meant being misunderstood, mislabeled or slighted, became the separation situation we responded to.
    —Roger Gould (20th century)

    The art of the critic in a nutshell: to coin slogans without betraying ideas. The slogans of an inadequate criticism peddle ideas to fashion.
    —Walter Benjamin (1892–1940)
