Berkeley's Theory of Vision free pdf Excerpt from Berkeley's Theory of Vision Berkeley's Essay towards a New Theory of Vision is a work of genius, and one neglected by most philosophers. The reason may be that it is thought to be 'mere psychology', or else but a prolegomenon to the Principles of Human Knowledge. The object of the present study is to bring out its philosophical importance, an importance quite independent of the main doctrines of the Principles. But the only real path to the understanding of a philosopher's view (and the only real compliment we can pay to his thought) is to consider whether what he says is true. This essay is therefore critical as well as expository. It may seem out of place that a whole chapter of a book on Berkeley is devoted to discussing certain views of Hume on taste, sound and smell, questions which Berkeley does not discuss in the New Theory. There are two reasons for this. In the first place it will be shown that Hume's work here forms the natural extension and completion of the main theme in the New Theory. In the second place Hume's views on this topic are also neglected, although deserving and requiring much discussion. I am deeply grateful to Professor H. H. Price, and to Mr D. C. Stove of the University of Sydney, each of whom read my manuscript and submitted it to a most detailed commentary and criticism. My wife has given me invaluable help on points of style. Those who know the work of Professor John Anderson, of the University of Sydney, will perceive my debt to his teaching on numerous occasions throughout this essay. This study was originally written some years ago- in the meantime I have changed my philosophical position on some points. But I have judged it better to let the book stand as it is, rather than risk destroying its unity by tinkering with it. Publication has been made possible by a grant from the Australian Humanities Research Council, to whom I am very grateful.
