Due to his theory of 'immaterialism' and Schopenhauer's regard of him as the 'father of idealism', George Berkeley (1685-1753) is one of the most important thinkers of the Early Modern period. The Bloomsbury Companion to Berkeley is a comprehensive one volume reference guide to his life, thought and work. In twenty six original essays, a team of leading international scholars of Modern Philosophy cover all of Berkeley's writings including unpublished manuscripts and correspondence, thus providing readers with a complete and accessible source of information to the entire corpus of Berkeley's writings. The book includes extended essays on key themes in Berkeley's thought as well as sections covering Berkeley's life and times, and also his intellectual influence and legacy.

This companion achieves a lot and is well worth the money ... If a collection serves users who are seriously involved with Berkeley studies not just in passing but with real committed focus, then this companion is of real value. * Reference Reviews *

A comprehensive and timely addition to Berkeley scholarship. Very impressive in its coverage, this Bloomsbury Companion is a great resource and a fitting tribute to Berkeley's philosophy in all its many aspects. -- Alasdair Richmond, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy, University of Edinburgh, UK
All of Berkeley's major works are addressed, from those with which his fame is associated today ... to his writings in mathematics, political economy, apologetics, and philosophy of perception.
