Show Summary Details


This chapter presents the author’s own point of view. It is a form of absolute idealism quite close to that of F. H. Bradley but also influenced by Spinoza, Josiah Royce, and process philosophy. ‘Pantheistic’ may be a more appropriate term than ‘absolute’ idealism to dissociate it from any absurd reduction of Nature to the human experience of it. The nature of metaphysical truth, experience, panpsychism, ethics, problem of evil, and absolute idealism and religion are analyzed. It is claimed that absolute idealism has a certain religious character of its own.

Keywords: absolute idealism; pantheistic idealism; metaphysics; panpsychism; ethics
