Berkeley, the Sun That I See by Day, and That Which I Imagine by Night

Philosophy 43 (164):152 - 160 (1968)
On A number of occasions in the Principles , Berkeley defends himself against the possible objection that ‘by the foregoing principles, all that is real and substantial in nature is banished out of the world; and instead thereof a chimerical scheme of ideas takes place. All things that exist, exist only in the mind.… What therefore becomes of the sun, moon, and stars? … Are all these but so many chimeras and illusions on the fancy ?’
