Misleading Questions and Irrelevant Answers in Berkeley's Theory of Vision

Philosophy 43 (164):138 - 151 (1968)
Abstract
Berkeley's essay on vision was published in the spring of 1709. It was recognised at once as a book of considerable importance, and there was a second edition within the first year. The author was still only 24. His design, he wrote, was to show the ‘manner we perceive by sight the distance, magnitude and situation of objects’. Hitherto, writers on optics had ‘proceeded on wrong principles’
