Abstract and Keywords

Though almost entirely neglected today, Shadworth Hodgson was an important and respected philosophical figure in Britain during the last quarter of the nineteenth century. An early member of Sir James Knowles’ Metaphysical Society, he was a joint founder of the Aristotelian Society which followed it, and whose first President he was from 1880-94. He was also, in 1901, one of the founding fellows of the British Academy. This chapter examines his main philosophical position as set out in his magnum opus, The Metaphysic of Experience (1898).

Keywords: Shadworth Hodgson, experience, time, specious present, William James, Husserl, idealism, compatibilism, immortality, epiphenomenalism
