<p>This paper re-appraises L.T. Hobhouseʼs (1864-1929) and J.A. Hobsonʼs (1858-1940) criticisms of British idealist philosopher Bernard Bosanquet (1848-1923). Their critique has been seen as an indication of the theoretical and ideological distance between the new liberalism and British idealism. Comparing their attacks on Bosanquetʼs methodology, theory of will, and state and welfare theories with what Bosanquet actually argued, however, reveals not only the irrelevance of their criticisms but also some fundamental commonalities between these two philosophical movements: they shared an interest in the methodological integration of science and ethics, a focus on the reciprocity between morality and society, and a repudiation of the spirit of materialism, all of which provided the ʻidealist liberalʼ background for the early British welfare state.</p>
