Summary:
Stephen Daniel presents a study of the philosophy of George Berkeley in the intellectual context of his times, focusing on how, for Berkeley, mind is related to its ideas. For Berkeley, mind neither precedes the existence of objects nor exists independently of them. Daniel shows how Berkeley transformed the issues with which he engaged.
