Example text

It is not clear how, for example, minima sensibilia can be the ultimate building blocks of perceptual experience if all sensory data are signs. A final difficulty is that the language metaphor's articulation in N. V. is more complex than in the Principles. The reason is clear. Visible data are signs of tactual data. Tactual data are themselves signs of objects 'without' the mind. There are several distinctions to be made concerning signs and there are ways of understanding how we learn to relate words and things.

That is, he argues that we need such principles if we are to make sense of what we know full well we experience. The adequacy of the Reidian theory is not my concern, but Reid's position is an excellent indication of just how effective an eighteenth-century philosopher understands Berkeley's argument to be. 55 6 Sense Variations and Scepticism The principle that 'an idea can be like nothing but an idea' (Principles ยง 8) is employed by Berkeley against representative theories of perception in general and specifically against the distinction between primary and secondary qualities.

Or the Principles with an eye to clarifying a complex text. And of course few texts have been quite so troubling as the argument to establish that esse is percipi, to be is to be perceived. C. and in the Principles, one important component in the argument is the anti-abstractionist thesis just discussed. Thus in the opening section of the Principles proper, Berkeley says that 'It is evident to any one who takes a survey of the objects of human knowledge' that they are one sort or another of ideas.
