British philosopher of the Absolute Idealist school, which argued that since we can only know our ideas directly the universe consists, for us, only of ideas. Although Bradley wrote widely on logic as well as the philosophy of history and psychology, he is best known today for his work in the area of ethics, epistemology, and metaphysical philosophy, the latter of which has been compared in structure to quantum mechanics. His best known works include Ethical Studies (1876), Principles of Logic (1883), and Appearance and Reality (1893). Bradley's teachings had a marked impact on the work of T. S. Eliot.
