Susan Stebbing was a leading figure in British philosophy in the early half of the 20th century, and was the first woman in the UK to be appointed to a full professorship in philosophy in 1933 at Bedford College — which has since been merged with the King’s philosophy department in 1985, where there is now an endowed chair in her honour.

And now, the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy has a full entry on her life and work, produced by King’s philosopher Michael Beaney and Liverpool philosopher Siobhan Chapman. Well worth a read for anyone interested in the history of analytic philosophy.
