Varieties of Explanation: A Memoir of Patrick Lancaster Gardiner 1922-1997
In P. J. Marshall (ed.), Proceedings of the British Academy, 138 Biographical Memoirs of Fellows, V. Oxford University Press (2007)
Patrick Lancaster Gardiner is best known and most widely esteemed for his work on the nature of historical explanation. By addressing the problem of the limits of objectivity in relation to a variety of philosophical issues, he presciently identified the source of a number of philosophical disputes well before they had properly developed. This was certainly the case in Gardiner's treatment of historical explanation, and it is true also of his later treatment of the claims of the personal versus the impersonal in ethical life.
