The other Bishop Berkeley; an exercise in reenchantment.

Bradatan, Costica.

Fordham University Press


227 pages




It is in fact the same George Berkeley (1685-1753), popularly known only for his solipsism, that Bradatan (philosophy, Texas Tech U.) considers here. But he proposes a new way of looking at his philosophy--assessing it from its roots rather then from the perspective of the various developments that his thought has triggered in modern philosophy. As distinct from the almost clown-like figure taught in schools, he says the obscure and humble man who actually lived and wrote is fascinating and worth getting to know.
