This chapter examines the elements of Platonic tradition in philosopher George Berkeley's early writings. It suggests that the elements of Platonic tradition are not isolated topics, loosely scattered in George Berkeley's work, but that his early writing forms an entire network of Platonic features, attitudes and mind-sets. No matter how ambiguous or allusive these Platonic features might seem, they constitute a coherent and complex whole that played an important role in shaping the very essence of Berkeley's thought.
