Relativity[edit]

Berkeley's claim that objects exist as they are only in relation to an observing subject is the fundamental claim of relativity.Lestrade 18:04, 8 November 2006 (UTC)Lestrade

Style of article[edit]

The following box has been attached to the article:

The article, however, does not deserve this box, because the article was purposely written as a paraphrase of Berkeley's essay. That is why it reads like an essay. If this is unacceptable, then the words "The essay says," "Berkeley says," or "The essay asserts," etc., will have to be inserted throughout the article. In this way, unwary readers will be reminded that the Wikipedia article itself is not making claims and declarations. Instead, the Wikipedia article is merely communicating Berkeley's claims and declarations.Lestrade (talk) 03:54, 4 February 2009 (UTC)Lestrade
