The creation of a British Idealist circle in the wake of T. H. Green’s courses at Balliol College, Oxford, in the 1870s

Jean-Paul Rosaye

Abstract

This paper aims at shedding some light on the creation of the ‘Essay Society’ devised by R. L. Nettleship, the two Bradley brothers (F.H. & A.C.) and other Oxford students in the 1870s. An examination of the preceeding philosophical context will be provided to explain why the philosophical reform desired by Hamilton in the 1830s, in line with a Scottish connection, eventually found its expression in Oxford and under the inopportune help of Hegelian ontology. Arguably, this 'Essay Society' provided a set of ideas that was instrumental in shaping the development of the British Idealist movement in the late-Victorian period
