        This book gives a great look at the Scottish Enlightenment, and its influence on the rest of the world. If you are interested in the Enlightenment, this is a must read.

      Christopher Berry's Essays on Hume, Smith, and the Scottish Enlightenment is more than its title promises. Yes, it is a collection of essays on David Hume, Adam Smith, and the Scottish Enlightenment, but it is also a remarkably coherent picture of both an intellectual period and of a professor of political theory, as Christopher Berry likes to think of himself, and the intellectual context . “Thomas Ahnert’s new book is a brilliant exploration of Scottish Enlightenment attitudes to the relations between religious doctrine and virtuous behavior. His arguments are clear, elegant and highly persuasive.”—Alexander Broadie, author of Agreeable Connexions: Scottish Enlightenment Links .

Demonstrates the extent to which the themes of Scottish political debate were absorbed and generalised in the thought of the Enlightenment. "This book, written for the general reader, considers the achievement of this most astonishing period of Scottish history. It attends not only to the ideas that made the Scottish Enlightenment such a wondrous moment, but also to the people themselves who generated these ideas - men such as David Hume and Adam Smith, who are still read for the sake of the light they shed on contemporary issues.

Scottish Enlightenment, the conjunction of minds, ideas, and publications in Scotland during the whole of the second half of the 18th century and extending over several decades on either side of that period. Contemporaries referred to Edinburgh as a “hotbed of genius.” Voltaire in wrote in characteristically provocative fashion that “today it is from Scotland that we get rules of.

And this explosion of activity still reverberates. It was the age of David Hume, Thomas Reid and Adam Smith, of Adam. The exception here is the work of Norbert Elias; see the second volume of his The Civilising Process, translated as: Power and Civility, trans. Jephcott (New York: Pantheon, ). See, for example, Adam B.

Seligman, “Civil Society as Idea and Ideal,” in Alternative Conceptions of Civil Society, ed. Chambers and W. Kymlicka (Princeton: Princeton University Press, ), 13– During the past thirty years the role of the natural sciences and medicine in the Scottish Enlightenment has been hotly debated.

Elaborating on the interpretation of the Scottish Enlightenment advanced by Nicholas Phillipson, John Christie argued in a series of influential essays that the pursuit of natural knowledge was one of the 'major elements whose combination formed the culture of the.

Thomas Ahnert’s The Moral Culture of the Scottish Enlightenment is an unusual work. Little more than an extended essay, its brevity and lucidity belie the complexity and force of its central thesis.

Whilst there is no doubt that the book represents an important historiographical intervention, it is rather harder to explain why or where it does so.
