Berkeley, a city across the Bay from San Francisco, California, is well-known as the center of the World-Historical Spirit. It was named for the Anglican Bishop Berkeley (pronounced Barkley -- see big red muppet dog) who was a British Idealist philosopher. A few years (19) after the Gold Rush of '49, people decided to bring Civilization to the West (Coast), so they founded this great university city.
