William Wallace (philosopher)
William Wallace (11 May 1844 – 18 February 1897) was a Scottish philosopher.
He was born at Cupar in Fife, the son of master-builder James Wallace and Jane (Jean) Kellock. He was educated at St Andrews University and Balliol College, Oxford, where he went as an exhibitioner in 1864. In 1872 he was elected a fellow of Merton College, Oxford and, in 1882, succeeded Thomas Hill Green as White's Professor of Moral Philosophy. 
His "brusque and sarcastic" manner earned him the nickname "the Dorian". His primary philosophical efforts were directed toward the study of German philosophers, particularly Hegel, of whose works he produced translations still renowned for their lucidity and sense of style.
William Wallace was married to Janet Barclay of Cupar on 4 April 1872, and had three children. He died on 18 February 1897 as a result of a bicycle accident.  While descending a steep hill at Enslow Bridge near Oxford, he lost control of his bicycle and hit a parapet wall. He was found unconscious and carried to The Rock of Gibraltar Inn, where he died the next day. He is buried in Holywell Cemetery, Oxford, with his wife and one of his sons.
