Abstract and Keywords

In this paper I provide an overview of the logical doctrine of three prominent idealists: T.H. Green, F.H. Bradley, and Bernard Bosanquet. I first identify the works in which this doctrine is developed; then I provide a general account of judgment, and inference. In my discussion of judgment I examine, the individual, hypothetical, and disjunctive forms as well as negation. In my examination of inference I compare the “nonlinear” (or “systematic”) and “linear” views. This comparison includes the idealist critique of syllogism, and the theory of the association of ideas (both examples of linear inference). I conclude with a brief discussion of idealism and formal logic.

Keywords: logic, judgment, inference, hypothetical, individual, disjunctive, linear, nonlinear, systematic, syllogism, association of ideas, formal
