Leonard Nelson


In the 1920s the Kantian philosopher Leonard Nelson and his co-worker Minna Specht founded an experimental critical philosophy school in Germany. When the Nazis came to power at the end of the 1930s, the school fled to Denmark, then to Britain. The SFCP was established in 1940 to support the newly founded school based on Nelson’s Critical Philosophy. Over the years the society has expanded its aims of supporting Socratic methods in education and now organises philosophical conferences, holds Socratic Dialogues, and publishes books.
