Letters from Shadworth H. Hodgson [Shadworth Hollway Hodgson (1832-1912), philosopher]. The first 2 letters relate to the first fundamental difference of philosophy between Hodgson and Alexander, 'my first distinction in philosophy is between knowing and known; yours between knowing subject and known object' as well as referring to colleagues and the Aristotelian Society, the third letter touches on Alexander’s concept of 'enjoy' and the fourth letter returns to the differences between them Hodgson describing it thus: 'I am philosophising, you are psychologising'.
