Overview


This edition includes a modern introduction and a list of suggested further reading.
 

One of the most interesting features of A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge is the symbiosis between a radical empiricism and a bold and uncompromising idealism. An artful combination of analytical rigor and unfettered speculation, of crystal-like precision of language and winged metaphors or sparkling images, George Berkeley's work is essentially a God-centered philosophy that argues that something exists only insofar as it is perceived by the mind.

Meet the Author



George Berkeley was born near Kilkenny, Ireland, on 12 March 1685. He entered Trinity College Dublin, where he took his BA in 1704 and became a teaching fellow of the College in 1707. He was a lecturer in Greek, Hebrew, and Divinity, and, in some way or other, remained affiliated with the College until 1724, when he was appointed Dean of Derry. Berkeley published most of his major philosophical works at a relatively young age: An Essay Towards a New Theory of Vision (Dublin, 1709), A Treatise concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge (Dublin, 1710), and Three Dialogues between Hylas and Philonous (London, 1713).
