This chapter focuses on Green's views on idealism. Among these is his belief that that there are obstacles to the idealist conclusion that account for the plausibility of empiricist and Kantian dualisms between the world of appearances and things as they are independently of appearance. He believes that Kantian dualism is unnecessary. Green's views about moral responsibility also presuppose that the self is not outside space and time but rather plays a crucial role as the cause of responsible action.

Keywords: T. H. Green; Kant; idealists; Kantian dualism; moral responsibility
