"We have first raised a dust and then complain we cannot see." -- George Berkeley
George Berkeley ( ) (12 March 1685 14 January 1753), also known as Bishop Berkeley (Bishop of Cloyne), was an Irish philosopher whose primary achievement was the advancement of a theory he called "immaterialism" (later referred to as "subjective idealism" by others). This theory contends that individuals can only know directly sensations and ideas of objects, not abstractions such as "matter". The theory also contends that ideas are dependent upon being perceived by minds for their very existence, a belief that became immortalized in the dictum, "esse est percipi" ("to be is to be perceived"). He published his chief philosophical work A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge in 1710.
Then, because of its poor reception, rewrote it in dialogue form.
So Three Dialogues between Hylas and Philonous, the second main work of Berkeley, appeared in 1713. In this book Berkeley’s views are represented by Philonous, Hylas being an embodiment of the Irish thinker’s opponents, in particular John Locke. In 1734, he published The Analyst, a critique of the foundations of infinitesimalL calculus, which was influential in the development of mathematics.
