School of Thought: The Scottish Enlightenment
The 18thC Enlightenment was a European, even a trans-Atlantic phenomemon. Two of its main centres of intellectual activity were France and Scotland. The latter country produced an extraordinary amount of “enlightened” historical, economic, legal, and philosophical analysis by figures such as Adam Smith, David Hume, and Francis Hutcheson.
