The Journal Litéraire Review of Berkeley’s Three Dialogues
- 54 Downloads
While the previous two chapters have surveyed the discussions of the philosophy of Berkeley’s Principles that appeared between 1710 and 1733, this, as well as the next two chapters, are concerned with specific criticisms which appeared during that period and which merit detailed philosophical treatment. Thus in this chapter, the excellent review of the Three Dialogues that appeared in the Journal Litéraire 1 (1713) is examined; in the next, the hitherto unnoticed remarks on the Principles contained in Ephraim Chambers’ Cyclopaedia (1728); and in the final chapter, Andrew Baxter’s criticisms (1733) are studied.
