Name of creator
H. S. (Henry Silton) Harris, author and educator, was born on April 11, 1926 in Brighton, England. He received his B. A. in Philosophy from Oxford University in 1949, completed his M. A. in 1952 and his Ph. D. in 1954 at the University of Illinois. Following a teaching career there and at Ohio State University (1951-1961), Harris joined the Philosophy Department at York University in 1962. He served as Academic Dean of Glendon College, 1967-1969. He retired from York in 1994. Harris was a prolific author and an acknowledged authority on the philosophy of G.W.F. Hegel. He is the author of several books, articles and book chapters on Hegel including "Hegel's Development I: Toward the Sunlight (1770-1801)", published in 1972; "Hegel's Development II: Night Thoughts (Jena 1801-1806)", published in 1983; and "Hegel's Ladder: A Draft of a Commentary on Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit", published in 1985. In addition, Harris prepared several translations of Hegel's works to which he added textual notes and introductions, including "First philosophy of spirit," (1979), "Lectures on the philosophy of religion," (1984- ) and "Encyclopedia of logic with the Zusatze," (1991).
