Beginnings and Influences

(p.13) 2 Beginnings and Influences
British Idealism

The chapter examines the historical influences on British Idealism as well as its earliest forerunners. After consideration of the general state of British Philosophy in the early 1860s, it considers the introduction of both Kant and Hegel into the British context and asks to what extent the idealist movement was simply a German import. The influence of Lotze, Coleridge, and Carlyle are also considered. As examples of figures who, if not themselves idealists, were certainly forerunners of idealism attention is paid to the work of Ferrier, Jowett, Grote, and Martineau. The chapter concludes with a brief discussion of the factors that led to the success of idealism.
