Summary "This book is a major contribution to the study of the philosopher F.H. Bradley, the most influential member of the nineteenth century school of British Idealists. It offers a sustained interpretation of Bradley's Principles of Logic, explaining the problem of how it is possible for inferences to both be valid and yet have conclusions that contain new information. The author then describes how Bradley's solution provides a basis for his metaphysical view that reality is one interconnected experience and how this gives rise to a new problem about truth."--Jacket
