ABSTRACT

This study analyzed the Harris's philosophical ideas, American library classification in the Harris's era, and relationship to Bacon, Hegel, DDC based on the Harris's classification system. As is generally known so far, Harris himself described to have derived his classification from inverted Baconian arrangement. It is nowhere to be found that Harris reflected on Hegel's philosophical ideas in his scheme. But on this study, Harris was a Hegelian and a leading American exponent of ideas of Hegel at that time. So we can analogize being reflected on Hegelian philosophy in the Harris's scheme and actually the Hegelian basis can be founded for much of Harris's scheme. Also we can find that Harris's scheme springs directly from Bacon and indirectly Johnston's scheme.
