Berkeley: My Self

Zitat

“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
