The life and philosophy of Edward Caird. (Original ) by sir Henry Jones, John Henry Muirhead

Sir Henry Jones, CH (30 November 1852 - 4 February 1922), was a Welsh philosopher and academic.

He was born in Llangernyw, now in Conwy County Borough, the son of a shoemaker. After working as an apprentice to his father, he studied at Bangor Normal College and became a teacher at Brynamman. Having decided to enter the Presbyterian ministry, he went to the University of Glasgow on a scholarship. After graduating, he obtained a fellowship, and went on to study at Oxford and in Germany. In 1882 he married a Scotswoman, and later returned to live in Scotland.

He was instrumental in the passing of the Intermediate Education Act of 1889, and worked for the establishment of the University of Wales and the introduction of a penny rate for education. He was knighted in 1912. He was appointed Companion of Honour in 1922, shortly before his death
