Show Summary Details

This chapter examines George Berkeley's immaterialist philosophy in close connection with the liber mundi tradition. It attempts to determine medieval implications of the topic that Berkeley presented and the novelties he brought forth in his usage of the topic. It explains that liber mundi is one of the most complex and fascinating cultural-philosophical topics of the medieval times belonging to that genre of all-encompassing metaphors that eventually came to encrypt entire systems of thought.

Keywords: George Berkeley; immaterialist philosophy; liber mundi; systems of thought; medieval times
