9780521450331: The Cambridge Companion to Berkeley (Cambridge Companions to Philosophy)

In defending the immaterialism for which he is most famous, George Berkeley, one of the most influential modern philosophers, 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, workings of language, aims of science, and scope of mathematics. A team of distinguished contributors not only examines Berkeley's achievements in this Companion, but also his neglected contributions to moral and political philosophy, writings on economics and development, and defense of religious commitment and religious life.

George 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 aim 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.

Review:

This excellent addition to the Cambridge Companions series brings together contributions by a number of outstanding Berkeley scholars...Among the virtues of this collection is its scope. Berkeley's epistemological and metaphysical doctrines are, of course, examined in detail, but there are also essays on his views about mathematics, science, ethics, politics and religion. The book includes an excellent, topically arranged bibliography."
-Charles McCraken, Michigan State University, British Journal for the History of Philosophy
"The Cambridge Companion to Berkeley is an excellent resource...There is undoubtedly plenty of material here for specialists to engage with."
-Nick Jones, University of Leeds, British Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
"An impressive collection...The Cambridge Companion to Berkeley is an excellent volume, covering a wide range of topics -- from metaphysical, epistemological and ethical issues to his philosophy of mathematics and natural science, as for sure his deep concern for religious matters. It will be helpful to students and of great interest to Berkeley scholars."
-Gabriele Mras, University of Vienna, Metapsychology
