Description

Berkeley's idealism started a revolution in philosophy. As one of the great empiricist thinkers he not only influenced British philosophers from Hume to Russell and the logical positivists in the twentieth century, he also set the scene for the continental idealism of Hegel and even the philosophy of Marx. There has never been such a radical critique of common sense and perception as that given in Berkeley's Principles of Human Knowledge (1710). His views were met with disfavour, and his response to his critics was the Three Dialogues between Hylas and Philonous. This edition of Berkeley's two key works has an introduction which examines and in part defends his arguments for idealism, as well as offering a detailed analytical contents list, extensive philosophical notes and an index.show more

Review quote

"This is a good collection. I like putting the Dialogues and Principles together this way. Berkeley is important and generally ignored. His arguments against Locke's notion of objectivity are powerful and need to be heard."--Patrick J. Mitchell, St. John's Seminary"This is by far the best edition of Berkeley for college students. The introduction is brief and to the point. The explanatory notes are extremely clear and helpful, they can be used by the instructor to organize the course. This edition is a model."--P. Kerszberg, Pennsylvania State University"A clear and manageable book whose organization renders it an exceedingly useful classroom text."--Peter Fosc, Hollins College"A good classical text."--E.J.
