This selection from the writings of the great English idealist philosopher F.H. Bradley, on truth, meaning knowledge, and metaphysics, provides within covers of a single volume a selection of original texts that will enable the reader to obtain a firsthand and comprehensive grasp of his thought. In addition, the editors have contributed general introductions to Bradley's logic and metaphysics and particular introductions to specific topics. These provide a systematic explanation of his thought and relate it to developments wihin the recent history of analytical philosophy, giving the reader a framework in which to read and appreciate this important and sometimes difficult writing. Admirably suited for use both as a textbook in taught courses on recent philosophy and for individual study, this introduction comes at a time when Bradley's thought is being reassessed and the importance o his work appreciated once more. As one of only two volumes of Bradley's works available, it is sure to become an essential Bradley reader.

Industry Reviews

`We ... owe a debt to Allard and Stock, for in collecting together all the key sections from The Principles of Logic, Appearance and Reality and Essays on Truth and Reality, they have successfully distilled the essence of Bradley's system in his own words in one manageable volume. Moreover, the volume has been edited together with skill and a scholarly attention to detail ... The book has a large number of excellent - that is to say, both accurate and very helpful - introductions; a general introduction, one dealing with his logic and one with his metaphysics, as well as shorter pieces introducing many of the individual chapters ... this is an excellent selection that deserves to be very widely read and will hopefully go some way towards filling a very lamentable gap in most philosophers' knowledge of the history of their own subject.'
