    Abstract

    Grace De Laguna’s philosophical work was bold and original. She was also able to connect together seemingly disparate strands of the pragmatic, metaphysical and psychological research going on around her, as Joel Katzav shows in his paper. This commentary gives some historical background to her academic career in an attempt to explain how she could have been forgotten as a philosopher. Social and institutional factors led to her work not being recognised when she wrote and thus sinking into obscurity in philosophical circles afterwards. Despite the lack of any immediate impact of her research on developments in philosophy, it is crucial to restore her thought to its rightful place in the history of our subject.
