Rufus Matthew Jones, the great American Quaker philosopher, was born in South China, Maine, in 1863. He received his B.A. degree from Haverford College in 1885, an A.M. in 1886, and an LL.D. in 1922. From 1917 to 1927, and again from 1934 to 1944, he was chairman of the American Friends Service Committee for European Relief which was founded in 1917 largely through his efforts. He was serving as honorary chairman in 1947 when the Committee was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.; He is the author of a large number of works, predominantly on mysticism. He died in 1948 at Haverford.
The work is written from the sources and is a valuable addition to our knowledge of the religious and ethical forces of the period.
