1891. For the Use of Students in the Universities. The design of the Selections is to afford appropriate mental exercise to those who are engaged in Psychology, Inductive Logic, and Metaphysics. Berkeley may be used for this purpose for the following among other reasons: His philosophical writings, although only philosophical fragments, are English classics of true metaphysical genius, which present subtle though in graceful and transparent language; Their principal doctrine, about the metaphysical meaning of Matter, is itself an acknowledged touchstone of metaphysical sagacity, and raises the subtle questions which underlie Psychology, Logic, and Theology; and Berkeley is an important factor in the history of philosophy, especially in the Era inaugurated by Locke's Essay, which includes the last two centuries.
