A History of Scottish Philosophy is a series of collaborative studies by expert authors, each volume being devoted to a specific period. Together they provide a comprehensive account of the Scottish philosophical tradition, from the centuries that laid the foundation of the remarkable burst of intellectual fertility known as the Scottish Enlightenment, through the Victorian age and beyond, when it continued to exercise powerful intellectual influence at home and abroad. The books aim to be historically informative, while at the same time serving to renew philosophical interest in the problems with which the Scottish philosophers grappled, and in the solutions they proposed. This new history of Scottish philosophy will include two volumes that focus on the Scottish Enlightenment. In this volume a team of leading experts explore the ideas, intellectual context, and influence of Hutcheson, Hume, Smith, Reid, and many other thinkers, frame old issues in fresh ways, and introduce new topics and questions into debates about the philosophy of this remarkable period. The contributors explore the distinctively Scottish context of this philosophical flourishing, and juxtapose the work of canonical philosophers with contemporaries now very seldom read. The outcome is a broadening-out, and a filling-in of the detail, of the picture of the philosophical scene of Scotland in the eighteenth century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
As the editors acknowledge, the volume is entering a crowded field... This volume nonetheless breaks new ground. * Simon Grote, Journal of the History of Philosophy *
This volume is a fascinating and rich voyage into the historical, political, social, and religious context in which philosophers of the eighteenth century developed their ideas and philosophical accounts. With authors coming from fields of study ranging from philosophy, to history, and to law and politics, the book offers a wider and deeper account of the world in which Scottish philosophers evolved than what is usually found in current philosophical works. * Esther Engels Kroeker, Journal of Scottish Philosophy *
... excellent and authoritative. * Laurent Jaffro, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews Online *
An excellent advanced introduction to the ideas (political and other) of the Scottish Enlightenment. * Chris Pierson, Political Studies Review *
