This philosophical work records an imaginary discussion on the subject of materialism, in which both figures share the view that the immediate objects of perception are ideas which exist only in the mind. But Philonous (Berkeley's representative) ultimately convinces the other that the objects are not resemblances of material entities of real things but rather are ideas or collections of ideas only some of which are perceived by us. One of the most important philosophical discussions of the 18th century.
