The Metaphysics of the Absolute
One of the most characteristic marks of British Idealist philosophy is the centrality it accords to issues of metaphysics. After brief consideration of their general understanding of metaphysics, attention is given in this chapter to the distinctive metaphysical worldview—the philosophy of the Absolute—held by the majority of them and with which the school became virtually synonymous. The Absolute Idealisms of Green, Bradley, and Edward Caird are examined in detail both individually and comparatively. The chapter concludes with brief consideration of some of the other philosophers who followed them in this broad metaphysical scheme.
