Biography and History

Dr. Warner was an educator, philosopher and author. For twenty-five years he was a member of the Princeton University Philosophy Department as Stuart Professor of Ethics, and in 1934 was the president of the American Philosophical Association. He was not a member of one school of philosophic thought and, consequently, wrote and taught in the spirit of his book Individualism (1911). In another book, Moral Philosophy, The Critical View of Life, Dr. Fite developed his view of life centering on the importance of the "person." He was a friend of the Spanish philosopher Miguel de Unamuno, whose novel Mist he translated (1928), and of Benedette Croce, the Italian philosopher.
