At age 9, George Santayana with his father left Spain for Boston. He received his B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. in philosophy from Harvard and then joined the faculty in 1889. During the early 1900s his five-volume philosophical work “The Life of Reason” brought him worldwide fame and accreditation as a naturalist. By the late 1920s, Santayana was the most influential figure in naturalist thought. His publication, “The Realms of Being,” became one of the great philosophical systems of modern times and served as the standard for future generations of naturalists. Looking to the past to help explain the meaning of life’s experiences, Santayana is best remembered for his famous quote, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
