Wiki: Arthur Oncken Lovejoy (1873– 962) was an American philosopher and intellectual historian who founded the discipline known as the history of ideas with his book The Great Chain of Being (1936), on the topic of that name, which is regarded as 'probably the single most influential work in the history of ideas in the United States during the last half century.'.
