BERKELEY by Stephen Priest


George Berkeley (1685-1753), the great Irish Anglican philosopher, argues for the radical thesis that nothing can exist unless consciousness exists. Although seemingly repugnant to common sense and in conflict with today's reigning scientific materialism, Berkeley's philosophy emphasises the existence of something we find difficult to explain: the reality of one's own subjective mind. Stephen Priest's clear introduction to Berkeley's thought shows how his fascinating arguments are harder to refute than might appear.
