Here James Tunney expresses both appreciation and pointed criticism of the life and philosophy of Bishop George Berkeley (1865-1753). While he is considered among the top rank of philosophers, he was also a slaveholder (at least briefly) and a supporter of British Imperialism. Tunney notes that Berkeley’s version of metaphysical idealism often engenders a feeling of dizziness and disorientation among students. He expresses concern that Berkeley’s philosophy will become a tool of scientistic transhumanists.
