From the Publisher"There is no book which confronts comprehensively—as Allard's does—the way in which Bradley arrives at his complexly interrelated theories of judgment, inference and truth by negative evaluation of alternative accounts....Allard succeeds in combining at each stage, lucid exegesis with critical discussion that gives Bradley's theories a contemporary relevance and raises them far above objects of merely historical interest."
Dr. Guy Stock, University of Dundee
"[Allard] is just the sort of traveling companion that is needed, being insightful, clearheaded, and calm in a crisis. He knows the terrain, has a good grasp of where the main peaks and dangers lurk, and moves at a steady pace. He is also encouraging and friendly, keeping you going when spirits flag, sharing your pain.
"This is all to the good, because Allard's central target is perhaps the most daunting challenge that British Idealism has to offer: Bradley's Principles of Logic. Allard shows characteristic sympathy with the weary traveler on this point...Nonetheless, of course, Allard believes he can find a way through for us, and I think he does."
Robert Stern, University of Sheffield, Philosophical Review
"...the book is to be welcomed by students of Bradley for its remarkably clear and unpretentious exposition of central themes in these difficult topics."
Thomas S. Weston, San Diego State University, Journal of the History of Philosophy
