The Other Bishop Berkeley

Costica Bradatan

Fordham University Press

This chapter examines the elements of Platonic tradition in Siris, the last published work of George Berkeley. It explains the nature and role of philosophy that characterize the Platonic tradition and identifies the specific rhetorical procedures through which Berkeley inserted the Platonic elements in his works. This chapter attempts to answer the questions on whether there is a sense in which this form of writing may betray certain Platonic suppositions and whether there are specific Platonic ways of textual construction that distinguish Platonism from other schools of thought.

Keywords:   George Berkeley, Siris, Platonic tradition, Platonism, rhetorical procedure, textual construction
