Francis Herbert Bradley was a British philosopher. Born 30 January 1846 at Clapham, Surrey, England.
Educated at University College, Oxford.
Philosopher. Member of the movement known as British idealism and famous for his pluralistic approach to philosophy. His pluralistic outlook saw a unity transcending divisions between the philosophy of ethics, history, logic, epistemology, metaphysics and psychology.
One of Bradley's notable characteristics, in his writing, is his technique of arguing from the meaning of a word. In his concern with word meanings he might be seen as anticipating the more language-orientated philosophy of the 20th century.
