A History of Scottish Philosophy is a series of collaborative studies, 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 volume covers the history of Scottish philosophy after the Enlightenment period, through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
Leading experts explore the lives and work of major figures including Thomas Brown, William Hamilton, J.
F. Ferrier, Alexander Bain, John Macmurray, and George Davie, and address important developments in the period from the Scottish reception of Kant and Hegel to the spread of Scottish philosophy in Europe, America and Australasia, and the relation of Common Sense philosophy and American pragmatism.
A concluding chapter investigates the nature and identity of a 'Scottish philosophical tradition'.
