Publication Announcement: ‘George Berkeley: A Philosophical Life’ (Tom Jones)

In May 2021, Princeton University Press published a new biography of Berkeley from Tom Jones (St. Andrews). According to the publisher’s blurb for the text:

“In George Berkeley: A Philosophical Life, Tom Jones provides a comprehensive account of the life and work of the preeminent Irish philosopher of the Enlightenment. From his early brilliance as a student and fellow at Trinity College Dublin to his later years as Bishop of Cloyne, Berkeley brought his searching and powerful intellect to bear on the full range of eighteenth-century thought and experience.”

Jones’ biography will no doubt be an essential resource for Berkeley scholars – especially in light of increased interest in Berkeley’s life, politics, and engagement in contemporary social affairs.
