From the Back Cover:

In the Scottish universities, an Enlightenment in philosophy, which George III dubbed "the Scotch Metaphysics", continued unabated from the eighteenth and throughout the nineteenth century. This book brings out how different the way of doing philosophy in Scotland was during this period by comparison with how it was pursued in England. In Scotland, as on the continent of Europe, philosophy was a central subject in the universities, whereas in England, except for a perfunctory application in faculties of divinity, it flourished only outside the walls of the academy.

Focusing on the works of Thomas Reid, Dugald Stewart, Sir William Hamilton, Thomas Brown and James Frederick Ferrier, The Scotch Metaphysics offers a definitive account of an important philosophical movement and represents a ground-breaking contribution to scholarship in the area. It will be essential reading for philosophers and anyone interested in the history of philosophical thought.
