Cambridge Introductions to Key Philosophical Texts synopsis

The George Berkeley Principles of Human Knowledge are an important text in experimental history and in the history of philosophy in general. Its central and surprising claim is that the material world can not exist independently of the conscious mind.

The meaning of this claim, the strong arguments in its favor, and the system in which it is included, is explained in a clear, legible and explicit manner in its historical context. Berkeley's philosophy is, in part, in response to the deep tensions and problems of new philosophy in the early modern period, and presents the reader with an account of this intellectual medium.

The book then follows the order and content of principles while relying on material from other Berkeley writings. This volume is an ideal introduction to the principles of Berkeley and will be of great importance to historians of philosophy in general..
