Minima sensibilia in George Berkeley’s Philosophy

Krzysztof Stachowiak

Berkeley has never given a straight exposition of his theory of minima sensibilia. The aim of this paper is to reconstruct this theory. I am deeply convinced that the number of notes concerning minima included in Berkeley’s Philosophical Commentaries as well as particular sections of his New Theory of Vision provide us with material that is sufficient for mentioned reconstruction and further analysis of this forgotten part of Berkeley‘s philosophy. First of all I examine the origin of the conception of minima, then give a detailed characteristic of minima themselves based on Berkeley’s works and finally propound several arguments against the theory.
