The author considers two arguments concerning the nature of space which occur in Berkeley and which he thinks are not sufficiently discussed. The first one concerns the phenomenology of space, the second the physics of space. The first one is the 'mite' argument, while the second draws from Newton's two thought experiments concerning absolute space: the 'bucket' experiment and the 'balls' experiment. The author's aim is to support the idealist approach to space.
