Product Overview

This book examines the Irish philosopher George Berkeley''s contributions to debates concerning the role of virtue in society, which formed the foundation of his reputation as "the good bishop." Through a close analysis of key texts and the larger historical contexts within which they were composed, this study explores Berkeley''s engagement with the social and economic threats facing Ireland and Britain, highlighting his belief that virtue and religion could help alleviate these problems. In doing so, Breuninger provides a more complete view of Berkeley''s work outside the realm of philosophy and thus broadens our understanding of his place in the early Enlightenment.
