Practically nothing has been written on seventeenth-century Scottish philosophy and yet a great deal of high-quality philosophy was written by Scots during the 17c. This introductory chapter surveys the field, taking into account the wide range of disciplines the Scottish philosophers investigated and also the context of their work, including the Huguenot academies in France.
