The eighteenth century Irish philosopher George Berkeley is best known for his empiricist and idealist philosophy, which argues that reality consists only of minds and their ideas. He is also known for his critique of abstraction, an important premise in his argument for immaterialism. His chief philosophical work, `A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge' (1710), largely seeks to refute the claims made by Berkeley's contemporary John Locke about the nature of human perception. This eBook presents Berkeley's complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts appearing in digital print for the first time, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
