Francis Herbert Bradley (30 January 1846 – 18 September 1924) was a British idealist philosopher.
Bradley’s work is one of the clearest explanations of ideas which are central to our 20th century fascination with alternate religions. His belief system went beyond mysticism. Yet his emphasis on understanding the limits of our mental life finds strong parallels in Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, as well as Western ‘New Age’ approaches.
Strangely, he wrote in the 19th century. We can gain quite a lot from reading Bradley, his writing style is clear and lucid, and after finishing the book, interested readers may find their world taking on a slightly different cast.
