Memorable Manitobans: Rupert C. Lodge (1886-1961)

Philosopher.

Born in England, he spent most of a distinguished academic career (1920-47) at the University of Manitoba. Arguably the best-known modern philosopher to work in Canada, Lodge was the author of a number of important works, including An Introduction to Modern Logic (1920), The Questioning Mind (1937), The Philosophy of Education (1937), and The Great Thinkers (1949). His strength was his ability to communicate philosophical ideas free from jargon. Marshall McLuhan, who was a student of Lodge’s in the early 1930s, regarded him as the only professor at the University of Manitoba of real intellectual stature.
