Objective Idealism

Discipline: Philosophy

Associated with Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831) and his followers, notably in England Francis Herbert Bradley (1846-1924). Also see: coherence-theory-of-truth.php.

This is a form of idealism whereby reality, though mental or spiritual, does not depend on the human mind in particular but comprises a single spiritual entity: the absolute (hence the name 'absolute idealism' also given to this view).

Reality is one, and individual minds and their contents are mere parts or aspects of this and have no separate existence.
