Victoria Welby (1837–1912) began working on philosophy in 1880s Britain, a heady period which saw scientists and philosophers grappling with new theories of matter, evolution, and space. Building on the debates of her day, Welby produced her own metaphysic – an account of reality on which matter is really motion, and wherein everything is really spirit. This talk will explore reality a la Welby.
