This book elucidates the writings of Hume, Reid and other 18th century scholars and sheds fresh light on both their ideas and the contexts within which they were writing. The "science of man" was remarkably broad in its concerns and this is reflected in the book, with chapters covering the 18th-century view of women, the "common people", language, modern aesthetics and philosophy.
