Product description

Review

Pearce has penned an important new contribution to Berkeley scholarship, one that aims to clear up many of the supposed paradoxes in Berkeley's thought that have puzzled other scholars. This reviewer believes he has largely succeeded in that task. But whether or not one accepts that conclusion, this is a book that cannot be ignored in future work on this 'Great Dead Philosopher'. (Eugene Callahan, British Journal for the History of Philosophy)

Pearce is a compelling writer, and this is a very rich book, full of both interesting textual analyses and interventions in particular scholarly debates, and with a strong story to tell about how to situate Berkeley both with respect to his contemporaries and also in the history of philosophy more generally ... this book is both a strong addition to Berkeley scholarship, and a compelling read to a more general philosophical audience, especially those with some interest in the history of philosophy, the history of ideas, or the philosophy of language (Melissa Frankel, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)
