Principles of Human Knowledge and Three Dialogues Book Excerpt:

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. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Principles of Human Knowledge Book Excerpt:

What I here make public has, after a long and scrupulous inquiry, seemed to me evidently true and not unuseful to be known--particularly to those who are tainted with Scepticism, or want a demonstration of the existence and immateriality of God, or the natural immortality of the soul. Whether it be so or no I am content the reader should impartially examine; since I do not think myself any farther concerned for the success of what I have written than as it is agreeable to truth. But, to the end this may not suffer, I make it my request that the reader suspend his judgment till he has once at least read the whole through with that degree of attention and thought which the subject-matter shall seem to deserve. For, as there are some passages that, taken by themselves, are very liable (nor could it be remedied) to gross misinterpretation, and to be charged with most absurd consequences, which, nevertheless, upon an entire perusal will appear not to follow from them; so likewise, though the whole should be read over, yet, if this be done transiently, it is very probable my sense may be mistaken; but to a thinking reader, I flatter myself it will be throughout clear and obvious. As for the characters of novelty and singularity which some of the following notions may seem to bear, it is, I hope, needless to make any apology on that account. He must surely be either very weak, or very little acquainted with the sciences, who shall reject a truth that is capable of demonstration, for no other reason but because it is newly known, and contrary to the prejudices of mankind. Thus much I thought fit to premise, in order to prevent, if possible, the hasty censures of a sort of men who are too apt to condemn an opinion before they rightly comprehend it.

A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge Book Excerpt:

A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge George Berkeley - With the publication of A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge (hereinafter referred to as A Treatise), George Berkeley took the then astounding claim that the material world that we think is real, tangible, and visual was nothing of the sort. The vast majority of all human beings took the understandable position that what they could see, hear, touch, smell, and taste was so obviously undeniable that no sane person could think otherwise. George Berkeley, however, thought otherwise. His position was later adopted in the twentieth century by Edmund Husserl, who furthered Berkeleys claim that an immaterial world existed on a plane beyond our own.Prior to Berkeleys novel view that the real world did not exist, it was the nearly universal acceptance of the thesis of his immediate predecessor, John Locke, that the entire universe was like a jigsaw puzzle of interlocking parts of matter composed of qualities inherent in all physical matterlength, breadth, width, weight, color, etc.that Locke called primary and those qualities that existed only in the minds of perceiving human beingscolor, taste, smell, etc.) that he termed secondary. Berkeley took the position that Lockes take on the universe was foolish, absurd, and full of what he saw as self-evident contradictions. If all that a believer of Locke was limited to were his own personal observations emanating from his physical senses, then how could he know anything of the external world when Locke even granted that ones belief in secondary qualities was provisional at best and unreliable at worst.Then there was Berkeleys contentious claim that those who believed in materialists like John Locke must inevitably doubt the existence of God. Berkeley insisted that if human beings could be wrong about the reality of objects in the external world due to the variability of the all too human tendency to be misled by the ever changing interpretations caused by secondary qualities, then it followed that universal skepticism could not be avoided. And skepticism of the natural world must lead to skepticism of the very belief in God. Berkeleys claim was that if the material world did not exist, then it was only ones ideas about the world that could give form and substance to this world. And an all-powerful and ubiquitous God was needed to do this. With Locke, God was only seen as the Original Watchmaker, who set the world in motion, and once having done so, departed the scene, leaving God as an absentee landlord who may or may not have any further need to intervene in human affairs. Berkeley was aghast at this possibility of Locke that excluded God from contact with human beings. Under his own theological interpretation, God was a vital component of the entirety of human existence. Thus, George Berkeley came to be seen as a visionary whose theories on immaterialism influenced later generations of philosophers.

Principles of Human Knowledge Book Excerpt:

Through reflection or introspection it is possible to attempt to know if a sound, shape, movement, or color can exist unperceived by a mind? This book largely seeks to refute the claims made by Berkeley's contemporary John Locke about the nature of human perception. Both Locke and Berkeley agreed that there was an outside world, and it was this world which caused the ideas one has within one's mind, Berkeley sought to prove that the outside world was also composed solely of ideas.

The Empiricists Book Excerpt:

The rise and fall of British Empiricism is philosophy's most dramatic example of pushing premises to their logical--and fatal--conclusions. Born in 1690 with the appearance of Locke's Essay, Empiricism flourished as the reigning school until 1739 when Hume's Treatise strangled it with its own cinctures after a period of Berkeley's optimistic idealism. The Empiricists collects the key writings on this important philosophy, perfect for those interested in learning about this movement with just one book.
