Berkeley's Idealism

A Critical Examination

Georges Dicker

  • Written in an accessible style and assuming no previous knowledge of Berkeley, this book can be read as a companion to Berekeley's Principles and Dialogues.
  • Dicker provides an in-depth analysis of the mainstream views against which Berkeley was reacting.
  • Demonstrates the ways in which Berkeley's arguments in the Principles and Dialogues dovetail with one another.
  • Makes new criticisms of Berkeley's positive metaphysics.
  • Relates Berkeley's work both to current Berkeley scholarship and to live issues in contemporary analytic philosophy.
