Taylor, Alfred Edward
Alfred Edward Taylor (1869-1945) was a British philosopher and Professor of Moral Philosophy 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!
