W. J. Mander was educated at University College London and Corpus Christi College Oxford. After holding a Junior Research Fellowship at St Anne's College, he became a Fellow of Harris Manchester College. Although he is also interested in Early Modern Philosophy, his main area of research is in Nineteenth Century British Philosophy.
`the first really comprehensive and systematic overview of the British Idealist movement to date . . . an authoritative and immensely detailed synopsis of the movement as a whole, including, for any potential research students, a splendid biographical resource . . . a welcome and extremely well-done history . . . it provides a valuable and detailed corrective to the way British philosophy has constructed its own historical self-image in the later twentieth century.'
