These, together with the extracts occasionally made from the Supplementary Dissertations, can hardly fail to convince the reader, that, when the whole of that work, as yet incomplete, is given to the public, it will constitute one of the most important contributions ever made to intellectual science. In order to make room for these additions it has been found necessary materially to abridge some portions of the original. On account of these changes, the division and numbering of the chapters have been altered in several instances, and some passages have been transposed. To give greater distinctness to the argument or exposition, sections have also been introduced"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)

Para Reid, esta expresión es sinónimo de una capacidad innata a la naturaleza humana, que la hace poseedora de principios incuestionables, compartidos por el filósofo y por el individuo común, mediante los cuales la mente aprehende las verdades básicas del pensamiento y de las cosas. Los elementos primarios del conocimiento están ahí y no cabe cuestionar su existencia; los datos de nuestra conciencia original han de presumirse verdaderos
Practical ethics : being lectures and papers on natural religion, self-government, natural jurisprudence, and the law of nations by Thomas Reid( Book )

11 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the originator of the Scottish school of "common sense" philosophy and the foremost contemporary critic of David Hume's moral skepticism, Thomas Reid (1710-1796) played a hitherto unknown role in applying the tradition of natural law to morality and politics. When Reid succeeded Adam Smith as professor of moral philosophy in Glasgow in 1764, he taught a course covering pneumatology (theory of mind), practical ethics, and politics. In presenting for the first time the philosopher's manuscript lectures and papers on practical ethics, Knud Haakonssen shows how these writings not only add depth to Reid's criticism of Hume but also clarify his own social, moral, and political thought. As a whole, Reid's Practical Ethics constitutes a most significant addition of source material for the study of the Scottish Enlightenment. The papers assembled here demonstrate the extent to which the moral philosophy of the Enlightenment was influenced by natural jurisprudence. At the same time they reveal Reid's involvement with republican, utopian, and radical themes and elucidate the relations between religion and politics in the Enlightenment. Haakonssen's introduction is the first substantial systematic treatment of Reid's moral-political thought, connecting it with his general philosophy and setting it in the context of his life and time

Thomas Reid on practical ethics : lectures and papers on natural religion, self-government, natural jurisprudence and the law of nations by Thomas Reid( )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pervasiveness of Protestant natural law in the early modern period and its significance in the Scottish Enlightenment have long been recognised. This book reveals that Thomas Reid (1710-1796)? the great contemporary of David Hume and Adam Smith? also worked in this tradition. When Reid succeeded Adam Smith as professor of moral philosophy in Glasgow in 1764, he taught a course covering pneumatology, practical ethics, and politics. This section on practical ethics took its starting point from the system of natural law and rights published by Francis Hutcheson. Knud Haakonssen has reconstr

Thomas Reid on logic, rhetoric, and the fine arts : papers on the culture of the mind by Thomas Reid( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Reid saw the three subjects of logic, rhetoric, and the fine arts as closely cohering aspects of one endeavor that he called the culture of the mind. This was a topic on which Reid lectured for many years in Glasgow, and this volume presents as near a reconstruction of these lectures as is now possible." "In addition, this volume continues the attractive combination of manuscript material and published work, in this case Reid's important and well-known essay on Aristotle's logic. This text was corrupted in earlier editions of Reid's works and is now restored to the state in which Reid left it."--Jacket
