Are Chairs Still Chairs Even When No One is Around? On Berkeley, Empiricism and Women in Early-Modern Philosophy

Margaret Hill, James – Athertonová

A wide-ranging discussion with Professor Atherton that concentrates on Berkeley’s theory of vision and his immaterialism. Atherton argues for a positive understanding of the immaterialism that goes well beyond just the denial of matter. She also gives her view on the empiricism-rationalism distinction and on women philosophers in the early-modern period and later.
