Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson (1862-1932), Philosopher

Sitter associated with 29 portraits
Remembered for his membership of the liberal-socialist intelligentsia of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and his response to the First World War. He led most of his life at Cambridge, entering King's College in 1881, where he was elected to the Society of Apostles, becoming a fellow in 1887. Early works include Revolution and Reaction in Modern France (1892) and The Greek View of Life (1896). The advent of the war affected him profoundly and he worked against what he saw as the international anarchy that had led to it. He was key in the conception of and campaigning for the League of Nations. His political writings include The International Anarchy, 1904-1914 (1926).
