Description
An idealist and an extraordinarily eloquent man of letters, George Berkeley (1685–1753) was well known for his departure from common sense, and his philosophical views were traditionally regarded as wild and extravagant; he nonetheless represented himself as siding with the "common folk," and the issues he addressed would become more widely relevant in the 20th century. This guide covers the whole range of Berkeley's philosophical work, offering an accessible review of his perspective on common sense and the nature of philosophical perplexity, together with an examination of his two major philosophical works, The Principles of Human Knowledge and Three Dialogues Between Hylas and Philonous.

"An excellent introduction to George Berkeley's philosophy and Berkeley scholarship.... The young scholar will find the book a clear and carefully developed account of Berkeley's philosophy. The established scholar will discover that [Talia Mae] Bettcher provides plausible challenges to some of his basic assumptions regarding Berkeley's philosophy."—Dan Flage
