This introductory chapter explains the objective of this book, which is to propose a new way of looking at the philosophy of George Berkeley. It evaluates Berkeley's thought from its roots rather than from the point of view of the various developments that this thought has triggered in modern philosophy. This perspective enables the characterization of two Berkeleys, one being the Berkeley of today's mainstream scholarship and the other a more obscure and humble version.

Keywords: George Berkeley; philosophy; mainstream scholarship; thought; modern philosophy
