ARTHUR LOVEJOY PLANS TO QUIT TEACHING JOB

AUTHOR OF "THE REVOLT AGAINST DUALISM"

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Arthur O. Lovejoy, one of the most eminent philosophers alive today and this year here as visiting instructor from Johns Hopkins, in an interview with a CRIMSON editor yesterday announced he plans to retire from active teaching this June.

Dr. Lovejoy has been Professor of Philosophy at Johns Hopkins 27 years. He has twice been visiting instructor at Harvard. In 1932 he was William James lecturer in philosophy. This year he has been giving two graduate courses, Philosophy 7, and Philosophy 20n.

Sixty-five years old, Lovejoy did not begin writing until 1930. That year lie produced what remains perhaps the best known of his work, "The Revolt Against Dualism." In 1935, in collaboration with Professor George Boas of Johns Hopkins, he published "Primitivism and Related Ideas in Antiquity." In 1936 he produced "The Great Chain of Being."

Recently Professor Lovejoy assailed Governor Nice and Colonel Ames W. W. Woodcock them president of St. Johns College, for their attitude toward the Teachers Oath Bill.
