About this product
- DescriptionThomas Reid on Society and Politics reveals the Enlightenment philosopher s acute comments on the Scottish political, social, and ecomic scene. Thomas Reid may t have published much on politics, but his manuscripts reveal that he was deeply concerned with social, political, and ecomic issues throughout his career. Published here for the first time, Reid's Glasgow lecture tes and his papers to learned societies in Aberdeen and Glasgow show that he was an acute commentator on contemporary politics and that his theoretical ideas framed solutions to some of the practical political and ecomic problems of his day. This volume explores Reid's eclectic system of political ecomy, which had considerable affinities with the work of Sir James Steuart. It provides an important contemporary template for comparison with Adam Smith, Reid s predecessor in the Glasgow chair of moral philosophy. It shows the continuing influence and transformation of long-standing paradigms within Anglo-Scottish thought. It includes a contextualising and critical introduction. All of the manuscripts are fully antated with explanatory and textual tes.
