Description

Berkeley's Three Dialogues is a key text in the history of philosophy - the dialogues are, with the exception of Hume's, arguably the most important philosophical dialogues written in English. As such, this is a hugely exciting, yet challenging, piece of philosophical writing. In Berkeley's 'Three Dialogues': A Reader's Guide, Aaron Garrett offers a clear and thorough account of this key philosophical work. The book offers a detailed review of the key themes and a lucid commentary that will enable readers to rapidly navigate the text. Geared towards the specific requirements of students who need to reach a sound understanding of the dialogues as a whole, the guide explores the complex and important ideas inherent in the text and provides a cogent survey of the reception and influence of Berkeley's work.
