Final Years

In 1732, George Berkeley returned to London. He continued to write and publish. He wrote against overtly materialistic views of the world, especially as exemplified in the new Mathematical ideas that were becoming established.

In 1734, he was made Bishop of Cloyne. He continued to write on both the areas of social reform and religious reflection.

He remained in Cloyne until 1752, when he joined his son studying in Oxford. He died and is buried there, having stipulated in his will that he was to be buried in the parish he died in.
