Essays on Truth and Reality is a 1914 book by the English philosopher Francis Herbert Bradley, in which he expounds his philosophy of absolute idealism and gives the classic statement of a coherence theory of truth and knowledge.[1]

Summary[edit]

Bradley expounds his philosophy of absolute idealism, and offers a coherence theory of truth and knowledge.[1]

Scholarly reception[edit]

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 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.[1]
