The Other Bishop Berkeley

Costica Bradatan

Fordham University Press

This chapter examines George Berkeley's thought from the standpoint of the Christian apologetic tradition. It attempts to show that the roots of Berkeley's thought could be found in this tradition. The first part of this chapter outlines the broader theoretical framework within which the discussion of Berkeley's apologetics is to be placed and looks at the special relationship that theism bears on his immaterialist philosophy. The second part suggests that his Alciphron is an example of apologetic writing.

Keywords:   George Berkeley, Christian apologetic tradition, theism, immaterialist philosophy, Alciphron, apologetic writing
