Book Description

1 Jan 2014
George Berkeley also known as Bishop Berkeley , was an Anglo-Irish philosopher whose primary achievement was the advancement of a theory he called "immaterialism" (later referred to as "subjective idealism" by others). This theory contends that individuals can only know directly sensations and ideas of objects, not abstractions such as "matter". The theory also contends that ideas are dependent upon being perceived by minds for their very existence, a belief that became immortalized in the dictum, "Esse est percipi" ("To be is to be perceived"). His most widely-read works are A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge and Three Dialogues between Hylas and Philonous , in which the characters Philonous and Hylas represent Berkeley himself and his older contemporary John Locke.

Product Description

Review

"A very welcome addition to Berkeley studies is Dale Jacquette's new edition of Berkeley's Three Dialogues. Professor Jacquette's introduction and annotations are extremely helpful, as is his inclusion of Berkeley's letters to his American correspondent Samuel Johnson....This book would be quite useful for general courses in Early Modern Philosophy, more advanced courses in Empiricism, and certainly for one devoted just to Berkeley."--Richard Brook, Professor Emeritus, Bloomsburg University --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

George Berkeley (12 March 1685 – 14 January 1753), also known as Bishop Berkeley (Bishop of Cloyne), was an Anglo-Irish philosopher whose primary achievement was the advancement of a theory he called "immaterialism" (later referred to as "subjective idealism" by others). This theory denies the existence of material substance and instead contends that familiar objects like tables and chairs are only ideas in the minds of perceivers, and as a result cannot exist without being perceived. Thus, as Berkeley famously put it, for physical objects "esse est percipi" ("to be is to be perceived"). Berkeley is also known for his critique of abstraction, an important premise in his argument for immaterialism. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
