ReceptionEdit

The British philosopher Timothy Sprigge has suggested that in some respects Bradley's absolute idealism receives a better exposition in Essays on Truth and Reality than it had in Bradley's earlier work Appearance and Reality (1893). He notes that Bradley's coherence theory of truth is the classic statement of such a position, comparing Bradley's views to those of Willard Van Orman Quine.[1]
