Professor Pitcher presents in this study a thorough-going exploration of Berkeley's metaphysical views. He shows their development from Berkeley's reflections about sense perception and from his conscious opposition to the teachings of his great predecessor, Locke.
The author analyses at length the extremely influential New Theory of Vision; he then considers Berkeley's view that reality consists of nothing but finite minds, the infinite mind of God, and their ideas and acts of volitions. Various features of this extraordinary system are examined, including the question of how far it can be reconciled with our fundamental commonsensical beliefs about the world. Berkeley's conception of the mind receives an extended treatment and the book ends with a chapter on his doctrine of passive obedience.
