John "Walking" Stewart (1747-1822) was an English philosopher and traveller. Known as 'Walking' Stewart to his contemporaries for having travelled on foot from Madras, India where he had worked as a clerk for the East India Company, all the way back to Europe between 1765 and the mid -1790s. Stewart is thought to have walked alone across Persia, Abyssinia, Arabia, and Africa before wandering into every European country as far east as Russia. This biographical essay discusses elements of his system of materialistic pantheism with a critical eye.
