Number of items:
Alfred Cyril Ewing (1899-1973) was a British philosopher and a critic of the dominant schools of linguistic philosophy and logical positivism. Ewing was reader in philosophy at the University of Cambridge from 1953 to 1965.
Ewing was known for his contributions to moral philosophy, writing a well-received, popular study Ethics (1953), and Value and Reality (1973). His surviving papers include his notebooks which date from the 1920s to the 1970s, a small body of correspondence including letters from his friend Henry Habberley Price, Professor of Logic at Oxford. There are also copies of Ewing'a manuscript/typescript lectures and articles, some of which are believed to be unpublished. The collection has value for the history of academic philosophy in Britain during the mid-20th century.
