I wish Barnes and Noble ff.h.bradley someone to select for them that was better than the ones they have. The readable ones are very expensive as a reprint has not been done that is affordable with good print.


This was the philosophy that so influenced TS Eliot when he was a philosophy student and also when he became a noted 20th century poet of renown. So I wanted to check it out when Hardy’s math book also praised it. Since the “screen” and semblance is now our major preoccupation.

Bradley has done away with reality. Take off and shred the present layer of appearance and guess what? This book, written inis one of the most important books in the history of English language philosophy.

Appearance and Reality

During his lifetime, Bradley was one of the best known of British philosophers, but before he died in his metaphysical position dropped out of fashion, in part because it was attacked and misrepresented by Russell and Moore.

In spite of their hostility, Twentieth Century analytic philosophers were profoundly influenced by Bradley. Bradley’s argument for absolute idealism is the best written in English.

His writing is lively, frequently pointed and sardonic, a “good read”. This version, a reproduction of the edition, is sturdy, well bound, on good paper. It is a bargain and a must read for anyone with a serious interest in philosophy.

He seems to have been something of a curmudgeon; at least, he was extremely reclusive and had a reputation for shooting cats.

But at some point in his life he must have come to some sort of deep mystical realization. Otherwise he couldn’t have written this book, which reads like a Western version of Shankara.

This is philosophy in the grand old style, and it’s one of the high points of British idealism. Bradley’s argument doesn’t always hold up in its precise details. He doesn’t, for example, think that “relations” are real because he says they lead to an infinite regress.

He also states firmly and I think correctly that there’s no conceiving reality apart from experience and there’s no duality in experience between subject and object.

But support for this claim isn’t exactly forthcoming. But the essential structure of his argument is sound and could be carried through again with a different set of examples the standard logical paradoxes, say: Well, Bradley puts it better than that, of course, and his prose style is very pleasant to read. This work is also excerpted in James W.

Anyway, the point is, don’t ever let anybody tell you there isn’t any nondualistic wisdom here in the West. In a different time and place, Bradley would have been revered as a guru — a prospect that in all likelihood would have made him cringe, so it’s probably just as well.


But he’s clearly trying to articulate a vision here, and few writers have tackled “rational mysticism” with such philosophical flair. I doubt that Shankara would have shot cats. Fortunately the similarities run deeper than that. Difficult read, even for me Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is very significant treatise on first principles. However the Kindle version is irritatingly sloppy. Poor format, poor transfer, – at times only the context of the scrambled “word” will reveal the actual word Bradley wrote.

I hope my friends at Amazon will redo this text and notify those of us who purchaed it that a faithful copy is now available.

The text of this orange-covered paperback is loaded with computer garbage see my photo for an example. The name of the publisher does not appear on my copy, or I would name and shame them here.
