Name of creator
The Department of Philosophy first appeared in the University Calendar of 1910, listing President Murray as a lecturer. In addition to the traditional classes on ethics, logic and religion the department offered classes in political science and psychology before those disciplines became separate departments. During the 1960s and 1970s the Department of Philosophy expanded its faculty to keep pace with the demand for both undergraduate and graduate courses. The department is known for its work in logic and act-utilitarianism. The following have served as head of the department: I.A. Mackay (1910-1912); L. Brehaut (1912-1918); J.A. Sharrard (1919-1946); J.V. Bateman (1947-1961); L.G. Millar (1961-1980); D.J. Crossley (1980-1983); T.Y. Henderson (1983-1985); P.T. Mackenzie (1985-1988); E. Dayton (1988-1995); D.J. Crossley (1995- ).
