Abstract

This collection of 11 specially commissioned essays examines the transformative contribution of the Scottish Enlightenment to modernity by examining three central themes: the Scots’ pioneering conception of commercial society, the equally pioneering development of the Scots ‘science of human nature’ and the emergence of the modern political economy.
