This chapter examines Berkeley’s theory of vision. He endorsed the essentials of Locke’s account of visual depth perception while deepening and extending it beyond anything contemplated by Locke. The core idea common to both is the need for “the Experience that what affects his touch so or so, must affect his sight so or so”. The synthesis of visual spatiality, Berkeley’s theory of spatial representation, the tactual bases of spatial imagination, the phenomenology of vision, the formal multiplicity of vision, the visual language of spatiality, and objects as chapters in the volume of nature are discussed.

Keywords:   George Berkeley, vision, spatial representation, imagination, sense-divide transcending object
