Berkeley's best work?

Postby HigherLvlofThinking on May 11th, 2012, 1:02 pm 

Does anyone know what was I think George Berkeley's best written work? I know read a little about him last year in my philosophy class but i cant remember what it was called or if he is even the right Berkeley? Please Help, thanks.

I can't say what his best work is, but his most famous is the Three Dialogues.

I specifically remember reading "Three Dialogues Between Hylas and Philonous, In Opposition to Sceptics and Atheists"

Maybe it's a different work you read? These are some of the best known works by George Berkley:
- An Essay Towards a New Theory of Vision (1709)
- A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge (1710)
- The Analyst (1734)
- The Querist (1735)

I can't think of another famous philosopher named Berkley.

That's an unrealistically big question I'm afraid. George Berkeley is the only canonical one.

I don't know much about him, can you share few links which having his written work. That helps to know much more about him.

Dear Vivian, your skepticism is odd
Of course, your mind is in the quad
Along with the qualia
And the sesquipedalia
Yours sincerely, a clod

Let's name towns in the USA named after philosophers. I'll begin with, um, St. Augustine, Florida
