Selon lui, le self de chaque individu est construit par les reflets que les jugements de ses parents et de ses proches exercent sur lui depuis son enfance. However, until now little biographical information has been available about his academic and cultural background, his personal and professional situation, and his position in the scientific community of the Victorian era.

However, John MacColl and his family belonged to the Episcopal Church of Scotland as did many MacColls—and also Sir Walter Scott, for example , so that none of the later births is registered in the records of the established Church. Apparently, he suffered from asthma. As late as his bad health made him and his family emigrate to Australia. He died in at Clifton Hill, Victoria. There is no further information about her or about her younger sister who, seemingly, was also older than Hugh.
Hugh MacColl in 5. A memoir and edition of his voluminous correspondence was published by G.
Russell in [Russell , esp. It is also a delightful book to read; Malcolm MacColl was clearly quite a character. She spoke only Gaelic. However, he died at the age 45 when his youngest son was only three years old. In particular, his scholarly education did not respond adequately to the needs of his talents. He was almost 40 years old and living on private teaching in northern France when he took his BA in mathematics as an external student of the University of London.
When he was nearly 50 years old he managed to receive an Oxonian BA in classics. Ednor Whitlock, on the other hand, risks not receiving an academic education at all. The sealed parcel Mr. Stranger inherits from his father contains the plan of a rocket that allows him to travel to Mars.
When Ednor Whitlock and his sister lose their parents, economic reasons make them accept inferior teaching jobs. Both children seek engagements as teachers. They find work in boarding schools at Blouville, a fictitious place, somewhere on the coast of northern France. If Ednor Whitlock had gone up to Cambridge to try for a scholarship it is not unlikely that he would have succeeded, for his mathematical abilities and knowledge were considerably above the average; but a heavy and unexpected calamity destroyed the project of a university career.
Worn out by anxiety and constant attendance upon her husband, she caught the infection, and in spite of the most devoted nursing, both by her son and her daughter, passed away before their eyes.

In view of the various correspondences between factual and literary information, these novels help us grasp the problems and perspectives that have shaped his personal form of life. He taught at Callander, Stonehaven and Perth. In , at the age of 23, Malcolm was admitted to the relatively newly opened Theological College at Glenalmond near Perth. He had hopes to be able to support Hugh to study at Oxford. However, Malcolm was already the outspoken controversialist for which he achieved fame in later life.
Consequently, the Bishop dismissed him from his post at Castle Douglas. He was therefore incapable of providing for Hugh as he had hoped, and too proud to accept offers of help from others. In MacColl moved to France. For the rest of his life he settled at Boulogne-sur-Mer. Little is known about the kind of life he was leading there; but even less is known about his intellectual development or his personal circumstances during the first three decades of his life.

But it seems to have been well thought out. Especially in Britain, Boulogne was known for its prosperity and the refined way of life it could offer to well off or, perhaps, to educated persons. No other town on the French side of the Channel adapted technological progress to its geographical condition in so comprehensive a manner. Since Boulogne had been connected to the French railway network. Five years earlier the South Eastern Railway had been extended to Folkestone. When MacColl lived at Boulogne it took five and a half hours to reach London; in Paris was at a distance of three hours.
At the turn of the century after continuous improvements of its docks the seaport regained its former superiority. MacColl was living in a prospering town with close economic and cultural links with Britain:. At this time, English shops and pubs, various Protestant churches, English surgeons and undertakers, local newspapers and regular theatre productions in English were natural facets of a balanced and liberal form of urban life. Apparently, MacColl frequented the place: It provided not just general tourist information but also specific references to various colleges or schools at Boulogne offering a French education under Protestant conditions.
Here, already in Europe but still close to the UK, a young person of some standing could receive a schooling sufficiently French to acquire or to preserve a higher-ranking social position in British society. Professional and intellectual aspiration let him become a part of the local, continental enclave of British society.
Gradually, time turned his decision into a definite form of life. Even as late as , MacColl when 64 years old recommended himself to Bertrand Russell as a lecturer in logic [MacColl a]. Apparently, MacColl got to know about these changes. Two years younger than Hugh, she accompanied him to Boulogne where their family soon started to grow. All five children, four girls and a boy were born there.
In April MacColl reported to W. Miller, then mathematical editor of the Educational Times , on the birth of his first daughter, Mary Janet [MacColl b]. Peirce intended to visit MacColl at Boulogne. It is not known whether they actually met; but in a letter written shortly before the planned visit, MacColl informed Peirce about the circumstances of his personal life, and writes: We have five of a family—four girls besides the little boy already mentioned. This fold-out box set presents a hardback facsimile edition of three sketchbooks made on Gilot's travels between and Collecting direct impressions and abstract reflections, they are suffused with the distinct atmosphere of these places: Venice, India, and Senegal.
Gilot travels to Venice in the summer of Her regular visits to the floating city as a child have made a lasting impression, and she feels a deep, continued connection. Her sketchbook drawings are made with a subtle palette, centered on different shades of a watery blue. Views of the city are mixed with reimaginations of the canals and cityscape, yet it is above all the spirit, history, and myth of Venice that animates her work. She also pays tribute to its art with various pages characterizing her forebears:
