Arguing against those who situate F.H. Bradley as a skeptic, mystic, or empiricist, this book makes a case for understanding his thought firmly in the tradition of rationalistic idealism.

Arguing against the recent nomination of F.H. Bradley (1846-1924) to the Anglo-empiricist tradition, Ferreira (philosophy, Kutztown U.) examines central logical-epistemological doctrines of this 19th-century British philosopher first formulated in his 1883 Principles of Logic in particular, his doctrine of judgment and its relation to feeling as part of his larger theory of knowledge. After discussing two of Bradley's critics, Bertrand Russell and William James, he concludes that Bradley's rightful, though hardly mainstream, niche as a "philosopher's philosopher" is as a rationalistic idealist. Includes an appendix on Associationism. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
