Editorial Reviews


"...McCracken and Tipton will likely be more useful to the student starting to look at the historical Berkeley, especially in the material on the background to Berkeley, which Berman's collection excludes, and with the inclusion of Hume... Some of these names, however, find a place in the extensive notes and introductory commentary, which increase the effectiveness of this collection for upper-division undergraduate and graduate students."

Book Description

This volume sets Berkeley's philosophy in its historical context by providing selections from; first, works that deeply influenced Berkeley as he formed his main doctrines; second, works that illuminate the philosophical climate in which those doctrines were formed; and third, works that display Berkeley's subsequent philosophical influence. The first category is represented by selections from Descartes, Malebranche, Bayle, and Locke; the second category includes extracts from such thinkers as Regius, Lanion, Arnauld, Lee, and Norris; while reactions to Berkeley, both positive and negative, are drawn from a wide range of thinkers Leibniz, Baxter, Hume, Diderot, Voltaire, Reid, Kant, Herder, and Mill.
