Book Description

This book, first published in 1985, presents a key collection of essays on Berkeley’s moral and political philosophy. They form an introduction to, and analysis of, Berkeley’s immaterialist arguments, part of his consciously adopted strategy to subvert Enlightenment thought, which he saw as a danger to civil society.
