Ideas of F.H. Bradley, by Text

[British, 1846 - 1924, Professor at Oxford University. Died in Oxford.]

1876 Ethical Studies
p.235 Happiness is not satisfaction of desires, but fulfilment of values [Scruton]
1893 Appearance and Reality
p.25 British Idealists said reality is a single Mind which experiences itself [Grayling]
p.42 Internal relations are said to be intrinsic properties of two terms, and of the whole they compose [Russell]
p.49 Claims about 'the Absolute' are not even verifiable in principle [Ayer]
p.112 Names need a means of reidentifying their referents [Read]
p.151 Bradley's objective idealism accepts reality (the Absolute), but says we can't fully describe it [Potter]
p.165 Metaphysics is finding bad reasons for instinctive beliefs
p.314 Qualities and relations are mere appearance; the Absolute is a single undifferentiated substance [Heil]
p.28 p.247 Relations must be linked to their qualities, but that implies an infinite regress of relations
p.519 p.26 Reality is one, because plurality implies relations, and they assert a superior unity
