Bradley and the Structure of Knowledge
This book examines some of the central logical and epistemological doctrines of British idealist philosopher, F. H. Bradley. Through a detailed analysis of Bradley's doctrine of judgment and its relation to "feeling," Phillip Ferreira views as mistaken recent efforts to see Bradley as a writer in the tradition of anglo-empiricism. And, though the significance of Bradley's thought remains great, Ferreira contends that it stands at a considerable distance from mainstream philosophical analysis. Arguing against those who see Bradley as either a skeptic or a mystic, Bradley and the Structure of Knowledge places the thought of the nineteenth century Oxford philosopher where it was originally understood to belong--firmly in the tradition of rationalistic idealism.

"Bradley and the Structure of Knowledge provides a readable guide to a difficult philosopher. It contains numerous insights and it reveals some unexpected ramifications of Bradley's views. Moreover, it does this repeatedly and in surprising places." -- James W. Allard, Montana State University "This is a clearly written exposition of Bradley's logic. Given the virtues of its argument and this clear exposition, Bradley and the Structure of Knowledge will provide a good entry to idealist and Bradley studies." -- Fred Wilson, University of Toronto
