<history of philosophy, biography> english philosopher (1846-1924) and absolute idealist. His Ethical Studies (1876) criticized Mill's utilitarianism and defended an ethics of self-realization, understood as the conquest of the bad self by the good. Bradley's metaphysical views, akin to those of Hegel, with a special emphasis on the internal relations of the Absolute are developed at length in Appearance and Reality (1893) and defended in Essays on Truth and Reality (1914). Bradleian metaphysics became the primary target for the anti-idealistic polemics of Moore and Russell. Recommended Reading: F. H. Bradley, Writings on Logic and Metaphysics, ed. by James W.
