    Thought, Language, and Meaning in Berkeley’s Philosophy.John K. Kearney - 1975 - New Scholasticism 49 (3):280-294.
    This paper evaluates karl popper's claim in his "conjectures and refutations" that berkeley's "nominalism" is at the root of his "instrumentalist" philosophy of science. the argument of the paper is divided into two parts. in the first part, it is argued that, according to berkeley, "thought" is ontologically prior to "language". in this sense, berkeley's instrumentalism is rooted in a metaphysics of experience and not in a theory of language. in the second part, it is argued that the meaning of (...)

    BERKELEY: THE ORIGIN OF CRITICISM OF THE INFINITESIMALS Abstract: In this paper I propose a new reading of a little known George Berkeley´s work Of Infinites. Hitherto, the work has been studied partially, or emphasizing only the mathematical contributions, downplaying the philosophical aspects, or minimizing mathematical issues taking into account only the incipient immaterialism. Both readings have been pernicious for the correct comprehension of the work and that has brought as a result that will follow underestimated its importance, and therefore (...)

    The Ad Hominem Argument of Berkeley’s Analyst.Clare Marie Moriarty - 2018 - British Journal for the History of Philosophy 26 (3):429-451.
    ABSTRACTThis paper responds to two issues in interpreting George Berkeley’s Analyst. First, it explains why the text contains no discussion of religious mysteries or points of faith, despite the claims of the text's subtitle; I argue that the subtitle must be understood, and its success assessed, in conjunction with material external to the text. Second, it’s unclear how naturally the arguments of the Analyst sit with Berkeley’s broader views. He criticizes the methodology of calculus and conceptually problematic entities, and the (...)

    Berkeley’s Philosophy of Science. [REVIEW]R. M. K. - 1974 - Review of Metaphysics 28 (2):339-339.
    This is a systematic and critical account of Berkeley’s philosophy of science. Brook’s intention is to evaluate Berkeley’s analysis of significant scientific concepts, his general theories in optics, physics, and mathematics, and finally Berkeley’s own interpretation and criticism of Newton’s principles. That Berkeley’s writings are pervaded with ambiguities, inconsistencies, and misinterpretations of Newton seems to be the conclusion that Brook reaches, although he does distinguish in the writings the areas in which he feels Berkeley is on target. Berkeley conceived the (...)

    Un impensé des Principes de la connaissance humaine : la physique mathématique.Luc Peterschmitt - 2010 - Revue Philosophique de la France Et de l'Etranger 135 (1):19.
    J'entends montrer que Berkeley ne traite pas de la physique mathématique dans les Principes de la connaissance humaine, alors qu'il aurait dû le faire. En effet, la manière dont il conçoit la nature est, sur des points cruciaux, à l'opposé de ce qui fonde le traitement géométrique des phénomènes. Dans cette mesure, l'application des mathématiques reste un impensé de l'immatérialisme en 1710, et elle ne sera prise en charge que dans le De Motu. My aim is to show that Berkely (...)

    Siris and the Renaissance: Some Overlooked Berkeleian Sources.Silvia Parigi - 2010 - Revue Philosophique de la France Et de l'Etranger 135 (1):151.
    This essay deals with a quite unexplored topic : Berkeley's sources from Renaissance. In fact, while the relationships between Berkeley and the most well-known modern philosophers (as Descartes, Malebranche, Locke and Hume) have been widely analysed, the importance of Berkeley's classical learning and erudition for the development of his own philosophical thought has usually been overlooked. After some general considerations, I focus on two topics : ether and tar-water in Siris. Cet essai traite un sujet très peu exploré : les (...)

    Ce livre, issu d’une thèse de doctorat sur Berkeley et les sciences, constitue la première étude systématique des rapports entre Berkeley et la chimie. C’est aussi une tentative originale pour examiner la cohérence et la pertinence d’un des derniers textes de Berkeley, la Siris, souvent considérée comme un ouvrage mineur, voire comme une erreur de vieillesse. Ces deux projets novateurs se croisent, puisque c’est par la philosophie de la chimie que Luc Peterschmitt cherche à montrer l’intérêt ..

Neste trabalho mostra-se, inicialmente, como Berkeley a deriva a partir de sua concepção idealista de corpo e da tese da transparência epistêmica das idéias. Passa-se, depois, ao exame de diversas de suas implicações no âmbito da filosofia da ciência: a concepção de leis naturais, as funções preditiva e explicativa dessas leis, o estatuto epistemológico das hipóteses científicas, o confronto entre o mecanicismo estrito e (...)

This reference to geometrical tools has led virtually all commentators to conclude that at least one reason why the unbodied spirit cannot have knowledge of plane geometry is (...)

    (Original French text followed by English version.) For Berkeley, mathematical and scientific issues and concepts are always conditioned by epistemological, metaphysical, and theological considerations. For Berkeley to think of any thing--whether it be a geometrical figure or a visible or tangible object--is to think of it in terms of how its limits make it intelligible. Especially in De Motu, he highlights the ways in which limit concepts (e.g., cause) mark the boundaries of science, metaphysics, theology, and morality.

    Berkeley's Siris is a chain of arguments which ends in God. First God is a metaphysical principle causally regulating the world or Macrocosm. But in the final paragraphs of Siris, God is treated in a theological perspective. This is to say that Berkeley introduces the idea of the Trinity and relates it to the rest of his chain argument. He says that Father, Son, and Spirit correspond to the philosophical notions of sun, light, and heat. I study the final theological (...)

    Berkeley's Dynamical Instrumentalism.Lisa Jeanne Downing - 1992 - Dissertation, Princeton University
    The aim of this dissertation is to explore a central aspect of Berkeley's philosophy of science, namely, his philosophical account of the status of Newton's mechanics. In De Motu, Berkeley's treatise on mechanics, he makes plain that he accepts Newton's mechanics as an excellent scientific theory, while refusing to admit the existence of physical forces. Thus, Berkeley is an anti-realist about Newtonian mechanics. In the dissertation, I seek to identify the grounds and nature of this anti-realism. ;Although Berkeley's motivations for (...)

    An Essay Towards A New Theory Of Vision addresses a problem which George Berkeley encountered in formulating the metaphysics of his philosophy of immaterialism in A Treatise Concerning The Principles Of Human Knowledge. In opposition to mechanical materialism, Berkeley argued that bodies do not exist without the mind, and that our everyday experience delivers clear evidence of the Divine Presence. The difficulty is that we normally conduct our lives in accordance with an independent physical world which exists in external space, (...)
