Appearance and Reality; A Metaphysical Essay

Publisher's device on the title page. As noted on the free front endpaper, this is Edward J. Holmes' copy, the nephew of Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (the former associate Supreme Court Justice). Part of the Library of Philosophy, edited by J.H. Muirhead. SEP, "Francis Herbert Bradley". A highly influential British Idealist, Bradley was widely considered to be one of the most important British philosophers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Both Russell and Moore were fierce critics of Bradley and helped steer British philosophy away from Idealism. This book consists of Bradley's attempt to reduce to absurdity a number of traditional philosophical notions such as the thing-in-itself, motion, self, space, time, etc. and most famously includes his paradox concerning relations. The latter continues to be provocative and controversial, and has generated a great deal of discussion since the book's publication. An attractive example of the first edition of one of Bradley's principal works, difficult to find in commerce. Very Good. Item #000011886

A spot of rubbing to the front board, one ink and a few pencil annotations. Several leaves unopened.
