Overview

This dissertation argues that Siris is a continuation of Berkeley's earlier theological and philosophical views. The Berkeley of Siris is the same Berkeley of the Commentaries, Principles, Dialogues, and Alciphron. Furthermore, Siris is an important piece to the Berkelean puzzle. Chapter 1 demonstrates the correlation between Berkeley's Bermuda project and Siris. Chapter 2 responds to scholars who argue that in Siris Berkeley departs from the Christian faith and argues that Berkeley's primary goal in Siris is to promote Christianity. Chapter 3 shows that it is evident from Siris (as in his other writings) that Berkeley is a weak panentheist, a term I define and use to contrast Berkeley with Moltmann. Berkeley's weak panentheism stems from his theocentric idealism and allows him to remain orthodox. Chapter 4 contends that while most scholars categorize Berkeley as a rule-utilitarian, he should actually be regarded as a virtue theorist. Siris is an important text to understanding Berkeley's moral philosophy. Chapter 5 contains a summary of the conclusions drawn from this project, as well as suggestions for further research.
