Editorial Reviews

'Candlish offers an important contribution to the debate over British idealism and the origins of Analytic Philosophy, the clarity of which shows the benefits of teaching his material - a benefit which, he concedes, Bradley's obscure writings did not receive.' - Andy Hamilton, Durham University for Philosophical Books  'This is a rich book...it is at once a valuable contribution to our understanding of the dispute between Russell and Bradley, and to our understanding of the philosophical subject matter of that dispute.' - Jeff Speaks, Australasian Journal of Philosophy  'Throughout the book, Candlish does a superb job in distinguishing what needs to be distinguished, in clarifying the philosophical problems, in charting the development of the relevant views of both Russell and Bradley, and in sorting out the confusions and misunderstandings on both sides.' - Collingwood and British Idealism Studies
