Cambridge Companion to Berkeley by Kenneth P. Winkler
Book DescriptionGeorge Berkeley is one of the greatest and most influential modern philosophers. In defending the immaterialism for which he is most famous, he redirected modern thinking about the nature of objectivity and the mind's capacity to come to terms with it. Along the way, he made striking and influential proposals concerning the psychology of the senses, the workings of language, the aims of science, and the scope of mathematics. In this Companion volume a team of distinguished authors not only examines Berkeley's achievements but also his neglected contributions to moral and political philosophy, his writings on economics and development, and his defense of religious commitment and religious life. The volume places Berkeley's achievements in the context of the many social and intellectual traditions - philosophical, scientific, ethical, and religious - to which he fashioned a distinctive response.

Berkeley, Paperback (March 1994)View all books by Kenneth P. Winkler
George Berkeley is famous for his metaphysical doctrine that matter does not exist; that the sensations we take to be caused by an independent external world are instead caused by God. Winkler offers an interpretation and assessment of the arguments Berkeley gives in defence of this doctrine, and places it in the context of his thought as a whole.
