Hello fellow philosophers!
I'm currently in the process of reading about George Berkeley's Idealism.
At one point, it is mentioned that Berkeley's Master Argument fails due to a conflation of representation versus what is represented. It is stated
"That is, when we imagine a tree standing alone in a forest, we (arguably) conceive of an unthought-of object, though of course we must employ a thought in order to accomplish this feat.Thus (as many commentators have observed), this argument fails."
My question is what exactly is an unthought-of object in this context? Is it simply refering to an object that is currently not occupying our minds?
Would appreciate a simple clarification. Thank you!
