Concepts and Reality in the History of Philosophy
Tracing a Philosophical Error from Locke to Bradley
By Fiona Ellis
Routledge – 2005 – 176 pages
This book traces a deep misunderstanding about the relation of concepts and reality in the history of philosophy. It exposes the influence of the mistake in the thought of Locke, Berkeley, Kant, Nietzche and Bradley, and suggests that the solution can be found in Hegelian thought. Ellis argues that the treatment proposed exemplifies Hegel's dialectical method. This is an important contribution to this area of philosophy.
