Dialogue 51 (3):419-435 (2012)
|Abstract||Berkeley in his Introduction to the Principles of Human knowledge uses geometrical examples to illustrate a way of generating which allegedly account for the existence of general terms. In doing proofs we might, for example, selectively attend to the triangular shape of a diagram. Presumably what we prove using just that property applies to all triangles|
