Berkeley: My Self

„But besides all that endless variety of Ideas or Objects of Knowlege, there is likewise something which knows or perceives them, and exercises divers Operations, as Willing, Imagining, Remembering, &c. about them. This perceiving, active Being is what I call Mind, Spirit, Soul or my Self.“ (§2) #Berkeley #ideas #ObjectsOfKnowledge #mind #mySelf
