John Passmore was born in New South Wales and studied at the Univesity of Sydney. He taught there before moving to Otago in New Zealand and then to the Australian National University. He is perhaps best known for A Hundred Years of Philosophy which has been widely recognized as a major feat of philosophical scholarship. He contributed widely to topics in the history of philosophy, philosophy of education, philosophy of science and philosophy of the environment. He was one of the pioneers of what has come to be called applied philosophy.
