(p.1) 1 Introduction
Berkeley's Three Dialogues

Stefan Storrie

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers developments in estimation of the philosophical value of the Three Dialogues over the last 100 years. It examines the view, presented in the early and mid-twentieth century, that the Three Dialogues is nothing more than a popular recasting of the Principles of Human Knowledge. It is argued that the stylistic and philosophically substantial reasons for holding such a view are highly questionable and that the emerging view, that the Three Dialogues is a more mature work where Berkeley develops his views after three years of additional exposure to criticism and further contemplation on his philosophical position, is a more accurate description of the work. It ends with a summary of the structure of the Three Dialogues and how the papers in this volume address the issues raised in that work.

Keywords:   Principles of Human Knowledge, Three Dialogues between Hylas and Philonous, Luce, Jessop, dialogue
