This chapter discusses George Berkeley's plan for a theology college in the islands of Bermuda under his so-called Bermuda project. It suggests that not only was Berkeley's philosophizing rooted in medieval and ancient traditions of thought, he also models the influence of the past even when designing a practical undertaking such as the Bermuda project. This chapter examines a certain relationship that might be established between the substance of Berkeley's immaterialist philosophy and the utopian character of his Bermuda project.

Keywords:   George Berkeley, Bermuda project, theology college, ancient traditions of thought, immaterialist philosophy, utopia
