About the Northrop Collection

Excerpted from Filmer Stuart Cockow Northrop Papers (MS 627) Finding Aid:

The papers contain correspondence, notes and lectures, writings, research materials, publications of other scholars, photographs, journals, and miscellanea documenting the professional career of Filmer Stuart Cuckow Northrop, professor of philosophy and law at Yale University from 1923-1962. The papers primarily document the professional activities and research interests of Northrop, not his Yale teaching career and personal life. The correspondence reflects his professional and research interests, in particular such subjects as philosophy of science, philosophy of law, oriental philosophy, and international relations. The papers contain typescripts of three books, notes for courses taken and on conferences attended, research files, and a variety of other material documenting Northrop's professional career.

Filmer Stuart Cuckow Northrop (1893-1992) was a philosopher, college professor, and author. A member of the Yale faculty, 1923-1962, in the Department of Philosophy and School of Law, he wrote eight major books, including Science and First Principles (1931) and The Meeting of East and West (1946).
