An article by Artyom Besedin for the Ideas section of the Insolance Cult project.

Immaterialism is the self-designation of George Berkeley's metaphysics, presented in the works "A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge" (1710) and "Three Dialogues Between Hylas and Philonous" (1713). Berkeley uses this term to refer to his own position in the "Three Dialogues." Materialism asserts the non-existence of a material substance, understood as something that can't perceive and can't be perceived, while existing independently, that is, independently of the perceiving subject.
