The essay emphasises Berkeley’s importance in the context of the history of the problem of other human minds. He raised the question of how “spirits” know each other. His answer begins with observation of the behaviour of the (potential) other human mind. His approach can therefore be seen as an anticipation of the kind of the solution of the problem which is also common in contemporary Anglo-Saxon philosophy.
