Bradley: An Essay on Appearance and Reality'. The core argument of this essay also became a central part of the second of his lectures on 'The Nature of Metaphysical Study', delivered in early 1934. 45 The essay provides an account of Bradley's central metaphysical doctrines, their origin in his 45 D. M. MacKinnon, Explorations in Theology, 29. lii EDITORS' INTRODUCTION rejection of the phenomenalism of Mansel and Mill, and proceeds to make the claim that Bradley was enunciating some of the central doctrines of modern realism and was not the idealist he was typically taken to be.

So a man who maintained that all the propositions of logic are (general) hypotheticals would not be denying the existence of anything. 55 This became one of the major themes of the correspondence. The second bone dealt with Collingwood's concern that if logic were purely normative 'it would resemble the exact sciences: it would in fact either be, or be closely related to mathematics' (EPM 129). Ryle clearly did not object to such a conclusion and suggested that Collingwood had forgotten that 'this is precisely what is desired for logic by many logicians, past 55 G.

Indeed, he was upset 'to find that apparently after all some judgements may be universal and so (I suppose) expressible in purely general terms and yet categorical in the sense of referring to something actually existing. '48 Ryle then observed that Collingwood's first argument for this conclusion was that the Ontological Argument is valid, and is indeed presupposed by all other philosophical arguments. He notes Collingwood's recognition of the standard objection to the argument, where he states that 'Anselm's argument that in conceiving a perfect being we are conceiving a subject possessed of all positive predicates, including that of existence, so that to think of this is already to think of it as existing, is an argument open to objection on the logical ground that existence is not a predicate; but the substance of his thought survives all such objections'(EPM 125).
