The Development of Berkeley's Philosophy

Excerpt

No apology would seem to be required for an attempt to examine the historical development of Berkeley's philosophy as a whole. In this book I have tried to throw light on the evolution of Berkeley's thought by a careful study of his works in their chronological sequence and by detailed reference to his relations with his predecessors and contemporaries. I have naturally devoted most attention to what is central in Berkeley's philosophy--his metaphysics and theory of knowledge,-- but I have not neglected the other problems that were touched by his wide-roving mind.

Every student of Berkeley owes a debt of enduring gratitude to the careful and loving work of Campbell Fraser. In addition to his indispensable commentaries and memoirs, I have sought help from every source that seemed likely to afford it. In general, however, I have found Berkeley to be his own best interpreter.
