Overview

Three Dialogues Between Hylas and Philonous by George Berkeley

Three important concepts discussed in the Three Dialogues are perceptual relativity, the conceivability/master argument, and Berkeley's phenomenalism.

Using Philonous, Berkeley argues his own metaphysical views, which were first developed in his earlier book A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge. [excerpted from Wikipedia]

About the Author

George Berkeley, also known as Bishop Berkeley (Bishop of Cloyne), was an Anglo-Irish philosopher whose primary achievement was the advancement of a theory he called "immaterialism" (later referred to as "subjective idealism" by others). This theory denies the existence of material substance and instead contends that familiar objects like tables and chairs are only ideas in the minds of perceivers, and as a result cannot exist without being perceived.

One of the books I read while getting my BA in Philosophy at UCLA. The starting point for Idealism in the Western tradition and essential reading for anyone with any interest in Western Philosophy.
