dc.description.abstract The present study attempts to examine the affinities and contrasts in the metaphysical systems of A. N. Whitehead and F. H. Bradley. As a comparative analysis, however, the study does not attempt to give equal attention to every aspect of both thinkers; rather, its primary concern is the influence of Bradley on Whitehead and the problems that bind them together under the genre of philosophical idealism. But aside from this historical concern, the book also attempts to work out solutions to metaphysical problems, especially those that occur where process philosophy and absolute idealism conflict. I generally defend Whitehead's view where conflict does arise, but I am not a follower of the Whiteheadian school that has formed in praise of his thought. Nevertheless, unlike the vast majority of analytic philosophers working in the field today, I do not think that total neglect is the proper approach to appreciating his genius. In my view, Whitehead and Bradley rank among the greatest thinkers in the Western tradition alongside of Descartes, Kant, Hume, Leibniz, Spinoza, and Hegel. en
