(p.87) 4. George Berkeley and the Alchemical Tradition
The Other Bishop Berkeley

Costica Bradatan

Fordham University Press

This chapter examines the presence of alchemical tradition in Siris, the last published book of George Berkeley. It shows that apart from being under the strong influence of the Platonic tradition, Berkeley's thought seems to have been also marked by some of the intellectual inclinations, spiritual concerns, and mind-sets characterizing the alchemical tradition. It discusses Berkeley's arguments and notions in the book with constant reference to alchemical topics, writings and authors.

Keywords:   George Berkeley, Siris, alchemical tradition, Platonic tradition, philosophy
