Abstract:

Berkeley-as-philosopher was--at least to the historian of early America--only a modest fragment of the whole man whom some Americans came to know and many more came to honor. Se early did George Berkeley enter into an unborn nation's cultural blood-stream that, centuries later, he has not been bled out. The story here recounted concerns the many-sidedness of that restless genius, particularly as it expressed itself in or left its mark on a portion of the New World.
