Of God and His Creatures

Writing in Mind for November, 1902, Mr Bradley refuses to allow the term 'will' in man to bear any other meaning than that of actual 'volition.' He merges 'power,' or 'faculty,' in 'act,' an identification which, St Thomas says, holds only in God. This is in keeping with Mr Bradley's steady and uncompromising repudiation of all potential being. Potential being, if it be at all, is the undoing of his philosophy. But see Appearance and Reality, pp. 384-7.
