Alexander Bain (11 June 1818 – 18 September 1903) was a Scottish philosopher and educationalist who was a prominent and innovative figure in the fields of education reform, psychology, linguistics, logic and moral philosophy. He founded Mind, the first psychological journal in any country, and was a revolutionary figure in establishing education as a science and applying the scientific method to psychology. Bain was the inaugural Regius Chair in Logic and Professor of Logic at the University of Aberdeen, where he also held Professorships in Moral Philosophy and English Literature and was twice elected Lord Rector of the University of Aberdeen.
