Biography

Oliver Reiser was a self-described cosmic humanist and taught philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh from 1924-1966. He was born in Columbus, Ohio, in 1896 and died on June 6, 1974 at his home in Pittsburgh’s Mount Washington neighborhood. He was 78 years old. Reiser served in the U.S. medical corps in France and Belgium in 1917 and 1918. He held B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees in philosophy from Ohio State University, where he finished his graduate work in 1924. Between 1924 and 1926, he did post-doctoral work at the University of Chicago. He joined Pitt’s Department of Philosophy in 1926 and retired in 1966. He was Chairman of the Department from 1955-1960. Following his retirement, Reiser stayed on at the university to counsel and teach occasional courses in the philosophy of religion. He was involved in many organizations over the course of his life, including The International Committee on Scientific Humanism, The Council for the Study of Mankind, The American Association for the Advancement of Science, The International Institute of Integrative Studies, the World Futurist Society, and Darshana International.

One of Reiser’s former students wrote of him that “in his writing the intention was no less than to combine all knowledge into coherence.” All of Reiser’s research, teaching, and advocacy centered on this integrative project, as it was his view that rifts were growing in both academia and the larger world. Reiser’s best known books included World Philosophy: A Search for Synthesis (University of Pittsburgh Press, 1948),  The Integration of Human Knowledge (Porter Sargent, 1958), and  Cosmic Humanism (Shenkman Publishing Company). In these works, he attempted to show that scholarly practice within the humanities, the natural sciences, and the social sciences could be understood as a unified inquiry into physical and human nature. He believed this insight when developed would revitalize academia and, ultimately, promote harmonious international relations. While he termed this worldview scientific humanism in his early work, he later preferred the term cosmic humanism. He wrote the following of this attitude toward life: “[scientific humanism] is ‘scientific’ without being materialistic… it represents idealism without supernaturalism.” Reiser worked to establish scholarly relationships with likeminded peers, including Julian Huxley, Alfred Korzybiski, Dane Rudhyar, Blodwen Davies, and Esther Watson-Tipple. His other notable correspondents included Albert Einstein, Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Susanne Langer, Marshal McLuhan, Gaston Bachelard, Edgar Mitchell, and S.I. Hayakawa.

Scope and Content Notes

The Oliver Reiser Papers comprise a wide variety of materials dating from shortly after Reiser's completion of his Ph.D. to shortly before his death in 1974. Reiser's correspondence reflects his many intellectual interests and his commitment to interdisciplinarity. The publications series contains only a portion of his published work, but the annotated drafts and diagrams therein provide valuable insight into Reiser's writing and revision process. The Personal Papers series and Media series contain many materials unique to this collection, including Reiser’s handwritten notes on disparate subjects, his thematically organized folders of scientific and philosophical literature, and his awards and clippings. Key themes include the following: general semantics, the integration of knowledge, the history of philosophy, the philosophy of education, the philosophy of mind, world peace, and world religion.
