Berkeley: A Mind Perceiving Sensations or Ideas

„That neither our Thoughts, nor Passions, nor Ideas formed by the Imagination, Exist without the Mind, is what every Body will allow. And to me it is no less evident that the various Sensations or Ideas imprinted on the Sense, however Blended or Combin’d together (that is whatever Objects they compose) cannot Exist otherwise than in a Mind perceiving them.“ (Of the Principles of Human Knowledge, §3) #Berkeley #mind
