Abstract and Keywords

The professionalization of British philosophy was not completed until the mid-twentieth century. But the fundamental changes in society and in the universities in the late nineteenth century prepared the way for the professionalization of university teaching and of particular academic subjects. This process was slower in philosophy partly because of the prominent role played by amateurs in philosophical institutions and partly because of the historic interconnection of philosophy with other subjects such as classics and psychology.

Keywords: amateur, careers, expansion, journal, professional Qualifications, societies, specialization, subject identity, teacher, university
