Scottish Enlightenment Links With France

Book - 2013
Rate this:
Scotland has always played an immense role in European high culture, and its greatest cultural links have been with France. This book shows that Scotland's connection with France stretches back to the Middle Ages and continues into the 18th century, the Age of Enlightenment. Demonstrating that all of the major figures of the Scottish Enlightenment were in close relation to France, especially David Hume, Thomas Reid, Adam Smith, and Adam Ferguson, this account also examines their French counterparts, such as Montesquieu, Madame de Condorcet, Victor Cousin, and Th©♭odore Jouffroy. Prominently discussed topics are skepticism and common sense, morality and the role of sympathy, and civil society and the question of what constitutes good citizenship.
