The word solipsism denotes the view that "self is all that can be known to exist"[/I] (according to online dictionary). I'm happy to say, then, I'm a solipsist. However the word connotes other things: that self is all that *does* exist (not, "can be known to exist"); that self (me) is all that matters, that I'm greedy, selfish, etc. I reject those connotations.

You appear to be doing Bishop Berkeley an injustice in not properly understanding his work or the criticism of it.

Your logic is impeccable. Now, after your detailed explanation, I finally understand the good Bishop and the criticism thereof! U should have been a teacher. I yield to your brilliant argument, which clearly demonstrates masterful understanding of the issues. Congratulations!

p.s. My post doesn't mention Berkeley and has nothing to do with him

> Nonsense is nonsense, even from Wittgenstein. I'll bet u haven't even read Berkeley?

My senile decay is voluntary which means I can turn it on and off, yours appears to be the permanent variety.
