Title in Portuguese
Distância e movimento em Berkeley: a metafísica da percepção
Keywords in Portuguese
Berkeley
Distância
Metafísica
Movimento
Percepção
Abstract in Portuguese
Esta dissertação examina a relação entre percepção e experiência na filosofia de Berkeley, esclarecendo seus principais aspectos ontológicos e epistemológicos, de modo a proporcionar uma compreensão nítida da identificação entre ser e perceber. Em primeiro lugar, definimos três posições filosóficas que constituem o contexto do pensamento de Berkeley, isto é, o cartesianismo, o ceticismo e o corpuscularismo. Em vista disso, discutimos dois temas centrais - distância e movimento - enquanto pontos decisivos para a compreender a inflexão de Berkeley no tratamento das questões ligadas à representação e ao conhecimento. Por último, destacamos a concepção instrumentalista de ciência defendida por Berkeley, a partir da distinção entre física e metafísica e da análise do conceito de causalidade.

Abstract in English
This dissertation examines the relation between perception and experience in Berkeley's philosophy, clarifying its main ontological and epistemological aspects, in order to provide a clear understanding of the identification between being and perceiving. In first place, we define three philosophical positions that constitute Berkeley's thought context, that is, cartesianism, skepticism and corpuscularism. In sight of this, we argue two central subjects - distance and movement - while decisive points in understanding Berkeley's inflection in treatment of questions concerned with knowledge and representation. Finally, we detach an instrumentalist conception of science defended by Berkeley, from the distinction between physics and metaphysics and from the analysis of causality concept.
