The theory of moral sentiments by Adam Smith( )

34 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 1,918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adam Smith's The Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759) presents an original idea of a general system of morals, and is a text of central importance in the history of moral and political thought. It presents a theory of the imagination which Smith derived from David Hume but which encompasses an idea of sympathy that in some ways is more sophisticated than anything in Hume's philosophy. By means of sympathy and the mental construct of an impartial spectator, Smith formulated highly original theories of conscience, moral judgement and the virtues. The enduring legacy of his work is its reconstruction of the Enlightenment idea of a moral, or social, science encompassing both political economy and the theory of law and government. This volume offers a new edition of the text with clear and helpful notes for the student reader, together with a substantial introduction that sets the work in its philosophical and historical context."--Jacket

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

17 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Reid (1710-96) is an original philosopher of lasting importance and a central figure in the Scottish Enlightenment. In recognition of this, the Edinburgh Edition makes available both the first critical editions of the philosophical treatises that established Reid as the great critic of David Hume and extensive manuscript materials which have never been published before and which show Reid as a strikingly versatile Enlightenment thinker. Introductions and notes by an international group of specialists make the volumes equally valuable to the student and to the scholar." --Book Jacket
The Cambridge companion to Adam Smith by Knud Haakonssen( Book )

26 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adam Smith is best known as the founder of scientific economics and as an early proponent of the modern market economy. Political economy, however, was only one part of Smith's comprehensive intellectual system. Consisting of a theory of mind and its functions in language, arts, science, and social intercourse, Smith's system was a towering contribution to the Scottish Enlightenment. His ideas on social intercourse, in fact, also served as the basis for a moral theory that provided both historical and theoretical accounts of law, politics, and economics. This companion volume provides an up-to-date examination of all aspects of Smith's thought. Collectively, the essays take into account Smith's multiple contexts - Scottish, British, European, Atlantic, biographical, institutional, political, philosophical - and they draw on all his works, including student notes from his lectures. Pluralistic in approach, the volume provides a contextualist history of Smith, as well as direct philosophical engagement with his ideas."--Jacket
A Culture of rights : the Bill of Rights in philosophy, politics, and law--1791 and 1991 by Michael James Lacey( Book )

35 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These essays on the American political founding and the evolution of the constitutional republic attest to the vocabulary of rights deeply rooted in the American political tradition, and note the "inherent complexity" of thinking about rights. The authors explore the cultural, moral, philosophical, legal, and political moorings of rights as they were established and have developed throughout American history, especially in terms of their status as "constitutional" rights.

The science of a legislator : the natural jurisprudence of David Hume and Adam Smith by Knud Haakonssen( Book )

46 editions published between 1981 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combining the methods of the modern philosopher with those of the historian of ideas, Knud Haakonssen presents an interpretation of the philosophy of law which Adam Smith developed out of - and partly in response to - David Hume's theory of justice. While acknowledging that the influences on Smith were many and various, Dr Haakonssen suggests that the decisive philosophical one was Hume's analysis of justice in A Treatise of Human Nature and the second Enquiry. He therefore begins with a thorough investigation of Hume, from which he goes on to show the philosophical originality of Smith's new form of natural jurisprudence. At the same time, he provides an over all reading of Smith's social and political thought, demonstrating clearly the exact links between the moral theory of The Theory of Moral Sentiments, the Lectures on Jurisprudence, and the sociohistorical theory of The Wealth of Nations. This is the first full analysis of Adam Smith's jurisprudence; it emphasizes its normative and critical function, and relates this to the psychological, sociological, and histroical aspects which hitherto have attracted most attention. Dr Haakonssen is critical of both purely descriptivist and utilitarian interpretations of Smith's moral and political philosophy, and demonstrates the implausibility of regarding Smith's view of history as pseudo-economic or 'materialist'

Natural law and moral philosophy : from Grotius to the Scottish Enlightenment by Knud Haakonssen( Book )

31 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and Portuguese and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This major contribution to the history of philosophy provides the most comprehensive guide to modern natural law theory available, sets out the full background to liberal ideas of rights and contractarianism, and offers an extensive study of the Scottish Enlightenment. The time span covered is considerable: from the natural law theories of Grotius and Suárez in th early seventeenth century to the American Revolution and the beginnings of utilitarianism. After a detailed survey of modern natural law theory, the book focuses on the Scottish Enlightenment and its European and American connections. Knud Haakonssen explains the relationship between natural law and civic humanist republicanism, and he shows the relevance of these ideas for the understanding of David Hume and Adam Smith. The result is a completely revised background to modern ideas of liberalism and communitarianism"--Unedited summary from book cover
The Cambridge history of eighteenth-century philosophy by Knud Haakonssen( Book )

26 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than thirty eminent scholars from nine different countries have contributed to The Cambridge History of Eighteenth-Century Philosophy - the most comprehensive and up-to-date history of the subject available in English. For the eighteenth century the dominant concept in philosophy was human nature and so it is around this concept that the work is centered. This allows the contributors to offer both detailed explorations of the epistemological, metaphysical and ethical themes that continue to stand at the forefront of philosophy, and to voice a critical attitude to the historiography behind this emphasis in philosophical thought. At the same time there is due sensitivity to historical context with particular emphasis on the connections between philosophy, science, and theology. This judiciously balanced, systematic, and comprehensive account of the whole of Western philosophy in the period will be an invaluable resource for philosophers, intellectual historians, theologians, political theorists, historians of science and literary scholars."--Publisher's website
David Hume's political essays by David Hume( Book )

29 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Hume is commonly known as one of the greatest philosophers to write in English. He was also one of the foremost political and economic theorists and one of the finest historians of the eighteenth century. His political essays reflect the entire range of his intellectual engagement with politics--as political philosophy, political observation and political history--and function as an extension of and supplement to works such as his Treatise of Human Nature and his History of England. The twenty-seven most important essays are presented in this fully annotated edition, together with excerpts from the History of England that point up their context."--Pub. desc
Enlightenment and religion : rational dissent in eighteenth-century Britain( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

13 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 431 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 by Thomas Reid( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 429 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 - Essays on the Active Powers of Man by Thomas Reid( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reid's last major work, The Active Powers shows how principles of Common Sense are involved in volition, action and the ability to judge morally. Reid gives an original twist to a libertarian and realist tradition that was prominently represented in eighteenth-century British thought by such thinkers as Samuel Clarke and Richard Price
Thomas Reid on society and politics : papers and lectures by Thomas Reid( )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Grotius, Pufendorf, and modern natural law( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modern natural law commonly means a tradition in moral, political and legal pilosophy that began early in the seventeenth century and petered out some time in the eighteenth century, varying from country to country. It is also generally accepted that this tradition was a fruit of Protestantism, albeit one that had influence both on Catholic natural law teaching and, not least, on the thought of the French Enlightenment."
Essays on the intellectual powers of man by Thomas Reid( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work covers far more phliosophlcal ground than the earlier, more popular Inquiry. The Intellectual Powers and its companion volume, Essays on the Active Powers of Man, constitute the fullest, most original presentation of the philosophy of Common Sense. In the process, Reid provides acutely critical discussions of an impressive array of thinkers, especially David Hume. In Reid's eyes, Hume had driven a deep tendency in modern philosophy to its ultimate conclusions by creating a phantom-world of so-called ideas that sprang from objects of observation; the self was a conglomeration of perceived ideas; and the will as the source of action was nothing but the balance of passionate impulses."
The Cambridge history of eighteenth-century philosophy( )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two-volume set presents a comprehensive and up-to-date history of eighteenth-century philosophy. The subject is treated systematically by topic, not by individual thinker, school, or movement, thus enabling a much more historically nuanced picture of the period to be painted
Ludvig Holberg (1684-1754) : learning and literature in the Nordic Enlightenment by Knud Haakonssen( )

11 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ludvig Holberg (1684-1754) was the foremost representative of the Danish-Norwegian Enlightenment and also a European figure of note. He was an Enlightenment thinker in the conventional sense, with significant works in natural law and history, but also a very important body of moral essays and epistles. He authored several engaging autobiographies and European travelogues; and - not least - a major utopian novel that was a European bestseller, a couple of interesting satires, and a large number of plays, mainly comedies. These comedies have secured Holberg's status as the most significant playwright in Scandinavia before Ibsen and Strindberg; his plays remain hugely popular and have hardly been off the stage since he died. Through his extensive oeuvre, but especially through his plays, Holberg had a decisive influence on the formation of modern Danish as a literary language, something that was a self-conscious effort on the part of a man who saw himself as an educator of the public. Despite all these accomplishments Holberg is most often remembered outside of the Nordic countries for Edvard Grieg's Holberg Suite and in the title of one of the most prestigious prizes in the humanities. It is the aim of the contributors to this volume to revive Holberg as a very major figure from a very minor corner of the Enlightenment world, presenting the latest scholarship from Scandinavia on the main areas of Holberg's work with serious emphasis on the wider European Enlightenment context and perspectives. It will appeal to all those researching intellectual history, history of philosophy, literary history/studies, theatre studies, church historiography, Scandinavian studies and Enlightenment Europe."--
