Taylor, Alfred Edward (L)
Alfred Edward Taylor (1869-1945) was a British philosopher and Professor of Moral Philisophy at the University of St. Andrews and subsequently at the University of Edinburgh. He was the author of a number of works on philosophy and metaphysics which included a commentary on Plato’s Timaeus and Critias. However, Taylor considered the Atlantis story to be “an invention of Plato’s fancy.”
He also referred to the wilder Atlantis theories which “seem to have a curious fascination for the imperfectly educated.” Ouch!
