Irish prelate and philosopher
whose basic theory, directed against the materialism of Thomas Hobbes,
is that to be is to perceive
or to be perceived. His works include Treatise Concerning the Principles
of Human Knowledge (1710).
according to philosopher/scientist
George Berkeley, our knowledge of anything is merely our sensation of it
and the ideas derived from these sensations. sound is the sensation
experienced through the faculty of hearing, and there is, to the trained
ear, a marked difference between the silence in an empty ballroom and the
silence at midnight on a lonely road.
