F. H. Bradley was the greatest of the British Idealists, but for much of this century his views have been neglected, primarily as a result of the severe criticism to which they were subjected by Russell and Moore. In recent years, however, there has been a resurgence of interest in and awidespread reappraisal of his work.W. J. Mander offers a general introduction to Bradley's metaphysics and its logical foundations, and shows that much of his philosophy has been seriously misunderstood. Dr Mander argues that any adequate treatment of Bradley's thought must take account of his unique dual inheritance from thetraditions of British empiricism and Hegelian rationalism. The scholarship of recent years is assessed, and new interpretations are offered of Bradley's views about truth, predication, and relations, and of his arguments for idealism.This book is a clear and helpful guide for those new to this difficult but fascinating thinker, and at the same time an original and stimulating contribution to the re-evaluation of his work.

F. H. Bradley was the greatest of the British Idealists, but for much of this century his views have been neglected, primarily as a result of the severe criticism to which they were subjected by Russell and Moore. In recent years, however, there has been a resurgence of interest in and a widespread reappraisal of his work. W. J. Mander offers a general introduction to Bradley's metaphysics and its logical foundations, and shows that much of his philosophy has been seriously misunderstood. Dr Mander argues that any adequate treatment of Bradley's thought must take full account of his unique dual inheritance from the traditions of British empiricism and Hegelian rationalism. The scholarship of recent years is assessed, and new interpretations are offered of Bradley's views about truth, predication, and relations, and of his arguments for idealism. This book is a clear and helpful guide for those new to this difficult but fascinating thinker, and at the same time an original and stimulating contribution to the re-evaluation of his work.

Editorial Reviews

`Mander's new book ... contributes to the rebirth of Bradley's thought ... Mander's book has its strong points. He provides a rigorous defence of Bradley's arguments ... a meticulous analysis of the anti-relational arguments ... a welcome contribution to Bradley scholarship ... the book willbe valued mainly for clarifying and accessing the various interpretations of Bradley and for providing a basis for contemporary treatment of Bradleian themes.'Mind
