Thomas Reid on Logic, Rhetoric and the Fine Arts - Papers on the Culture of the Mind (Hardcover): Thomas Reid Thomas Reid on Logic, Rhetoric and the Fine Arts - Papers on the Culture of the Mind (Hardcover)
Thomas Reid; Edited by Alexander Broadie
R3,870 R3,285 Discovery Miles 32 850 Save R585 (15%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Thomas Reid saw the three subjects of logic, rhetoric and the fine arts as closely cohering aspects of one endeavour which he called the culture of the mind. This was a topic on which Reid lectured for many years in Glasgow and the volume is as near a reconstruction of these lectures as is now possible. The material is virtually unknown now but in fact it relates closely to Reid's published works and in particular to the two late ones, Essays on the Intellectual Powers of Man and Essays on the Active Powers of Man. When composing these volumes, Reid drew primarily on his lectures on 'pneumatology' which presented a theory of the mental powers, broadly conceived. These lectures were basic to the course on the culture of the mind which explained the cultivation of the mental powers. Although the Essays also included some elements from the material on the culture of the mind, the bulk of the latter was left in manuscript form and Professor Broadie's edition restores this important extension of Reid's overall work. In addition, this volume continues the Edinburgh Edition's attractive combination of manuscript material and published work, in this case Reid's important and well known essay on Aristotle's logic. This text was corrupted in older editions of Reid's works and is now restored to the state in which Reid left it. This volume underscores Reid's great and growing significance, viewed both as an historical figure and as a philosopher. At the same time, it is of great interdisciplinary importance. While the material emerges directly from the core of Reid's philosophy, as now understood, it will appeal widely to people in literary, cultural, historical and communications studies. In this regard, the present volume is a true fruit of the Scottish Enlightenment.

Agreeable Connexions - Scottish Enlightenment Links with France (Paperback): Alexander Broadie Agreeable Connexions - Scottish Enlightenment Links with France (Paperback)

R568 R510 Discovery Miles 5 100 Save R58 (10%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Scotland has played an immense role in European high culture through the centuries, and among its cultural links none have been greater than those with France. This book shows that the links with France stretch back deep into the Middle Ages, and continue without a break into the eighteenth century, the Age of Enlightenment. In one way or another all of the major figures of the Scottish Enlightenment were in close relation to France, and though this book attends to the broad picture of the cultural links binding the two countries, the focus is on certain individuals, especially David Hume, Thomas Reid, Adam Smith and Adam Ferguson, and certain of their French counterparts such as Montesquieu, Madame de Condorcet, Victor Cousin and Theodore Jouffroy. Prominent among the areas under discussion are scepticism and common sense, morality and the role of sympathy, and civil society and the question of what constitutes good citizenship. The book should appeal to all with an interest in the broad sweep of Scottish cultural history and more particularly in the country's Age of Enlightenment and its links with France.

The Scottish Enlightenment - An Anthology (Paperback, Main): Alexander Broadie The Scottish Enlightenment - An Anthology (Paperback, Main)

R410 R310 Discovery Miles 3 100 Save R100 (24%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The Scottish Enlightenment is one of the great achievements of European culture. In philosophy, law, economics, politics, linguistics and the physical sciences, Scots were key players in changing the way the world was viewed. And this explosion of activity still reverberates. It was the age of David Hume, Thomas Reid and Adam Smith, of Adam Ferguson, James Hutton and Sir John Sinclair. In his authoritative introduction, Alexander Broadie emphasises not only the diversity of intellectual discussion taking place in this small country located on the outer edge of Europe, but also the European dimension of this Scottish movement. After the general introduction, the anthology is arranged thematically - Human Nature, Ethics, Aesthetics, Religion, Economics, Social Theory and Politics, Law, Historiography, Language and Science. These sections gather together well-known and lesser-known writings of the time. Much of the material has not been reprinted since the 18th century. Those with an interest in the Scottish cultural tradition will find many things to hold their attention in this unique book.

The Scottish Enlightenment (Paperback): Alexander Broadie The Scottish Enlightenment (Paperback)

The Scottish Enlightenment was one of the greatest intellectual and cultural movements that the world has ever seen. Its legacy in philosophy, history, science, music, art, architecture, economics, and many other disciplines cannot be overstated. The New Town of Edinburgh would be inconceivable without the doctrines of Enlightenment, equally so would the writings of Karl Marx or the US Constitution. To this day, the doctrines of Enlightenment are still quoted and misquoted. There can be few countries that have produced such a galaxy of talent in so small a compass. David Hume and Adam Smith merely stand as two of the best known. Yet this is the first book for the general reader to consider in its totality the achievement of this most astonishing period of Scottish history, not simply the thoughts, ideas, and people who lived then, but also the creations that were animated by that thought. This is a book not simply about ideas but also about those ideas made flesh and about the new tra

Introduction to Medieval Logic (Hardcover, 2nd Revised edition): Alexander Broadie Introduction to Medieval Logic (Hardcover, 2nd Revised edition)

Alexander Broadie explains the theories of truth and validity of the great logicians of the fourteenth century. He shows how far they advanced beyond the logic of Aristotle, and reveals that much of what seems characteristically twentieth-century logic was familiar long ago. He has extensively revised his text for this second edition, while preserving the character of the first. There are now fuller accounts of supposition of intentional contexts, and of medieval syllogistics, and the conclusion has been substantially expanded.

English summary: What sort of control and responsibility to we have in regards to our beliefs? How much can we decide what we believe? This question has perturbed philosophers since Antiquity, combining with Christian responsibility and faith in the Middle Ages, and faced with the problem of tolerance in modern society. This volume explores the controversy over the role of choice in belief at a time of increased interest in the subject, employing philosophical approaches developed to untangle that which depends on the believers own will, and that which does not. French description: Quelle sorte de controle et, par suite, de responsabilite, avons-nous a l'egard de nos croyances? Dans quelle mesure pouvons-nous decider de croire? Cette question agite la philosophie europeenne depuis Aristote, les stoiciens, et les sceptiques; avec les medievaux, elle croise celle de la responsabilite du chretien a l'egard de sa foi; avec les modernes, elle rencontre le probleme pratique de la tolerance. Cet ouvrage explore ainsi l'histoire de la controverse sur le role de la volonte dans ce que les classiques appellent l'assentiment. Il le fait non dans une perspective d'erudition, mais avec pour objectif de contribuer a une meilleure intelligence d'une question qui connait aujourd'hui un important regain d'interet, dans le domaine de l'epistemologie, de la psychologie, ou de la philosophie de la religion, et dont les enjeux ethiques et politiques sont evidents. Les contributeurs s'aident en retour des outils que la philosophie de l'esprit, durant ces dernieres decennies, a developpes, pour demeler ce qui, dans la croyance, depend de l'initiative du croyant, et ce qui ne depend pas de lui.

Many works on Scottish philosophy have concentrated on the Scottish Enlightenment, leading to a seriously distorted picture of Scottish intellectual history. A circle of Scottish philosophers, led by John Mair, gained Europe-wide appreciation for their work two and half centuries before that period, and their work had a major significance for Scottish culture. This study attempts to correct the bias in the history of Scottish thought by giving due attention to the earlier flowering of philosophy, as well as to the Enlightenment. Broadie looks at the evolution of philosophy from the beginning of the fifteenth century in Scotland. He relates ideas and concerns in philosophy before the Enlightenment to those which followed, revealing important similarities between the two. This is done in a highly accessible manner which makes these ideas available to the general reader.
