Three Dialogues between Hylas and Philonous is a book written by George Berkeley in 1713.
Three important concepts discussed in the Three Dialogues are perceptual relativity, the conceivability/master argument ("master argument" was coined by Andre Gallois), and Berkeley's phenomenalism.
Perceptual relativity argues that the same object can appear to have different characteristics (e.g. shape) depending on the observer's perspective. Since objective features of objects cannot change without an inherent change in the object itself, shape must not be an objective feature. (Quote from wikipedia.org)

George Berkeley (1685 - 1753)
George Berkeley (12 March 1685 - 14 January 1753), also known as Bishop Berkeley, was an Irish philosopher. His primary philosophical achievement was the advancement of a theory he called "immaterialism" (later referred to as "subjective idealism" by others). This theory, summed up in his dictum, "Esse est percipi" ("To be is to be perceived"), contends that individuals can only directly know sensations and ideas of objects, not abstractions such as "matter." His most widely-read works are A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge (1710) and Three Dialogues between Hylas and Philonous (1713), in which the characters Philonous and Hylas represent Berkeley himself and his contemporary John Locke. In 1734 he published The Analyst, a critique of the foundations of calculus, which was influential in the development of mathematics.
Berkeley's influence is also reflected in the institutions of education named in his honour. Both University of California, Berkeley and the city that grew up around the university, were named after him, although the pronunciation has evolved to suit Amer
