This concluding chapter sums up the key findings and issues discussed in this book about the philosophy of George Berkeley. It was shown that there are a number of important topics, notions and concerns about Berkeley's thought that are often not covered in today's mainstream Berkeley scholarship. These issues include alchemy, archetypal knowledge, the liber mundi and Cathar-like attitudes to the material world. This chapter clarifies that this book does not attempt to replace the existing manner of treating Berkeley's philosophy, it only shows the importance and possibility of supplementing existing analytically-minded scholarship with a sense of historical awareness.
