The Analyst

By George Berkeley

The Analyst, by George Berkeley is available here in PDF, PostScript and HTML formats.

The PDF and Postscript versions were created using the typesetting program TeX, the diagrams being created using METAPOST. The TeX and METAPOST source files are also available.

The text is based on the first editions of 1734, published in London and Dublin.

Many mathematicians published replies to Berkeley's attack on contemporary mathematical practice in The Analyst. Many of these have been included in an archive of online texts relevant to the Analyst Controversy.
