An inquiry into the original of our ideas of beauty and virtue : in two treatises by Francis Hutcheson( Book )

177 editions published between 1725 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Inquiry was written as a critical response to the work of Bernard Mandeville and as a defense of the ideas of Anthony Ashley Cooper, Lord Shaftesbury. It consists of two treatises exploring our aesthetic and our moral abilities. The first treatise argues that human beings possess a natural internal sense of beauty, whereas the second focuses on the "moral sense" that enables us to distinguish virtue from vice and thus to act from moral love or "benevolence.""--Jacket
An essay on the nature and conduct of the passions and affections; with illustrations on the moral sense by Francis Hutcheson( Book )

132 editions published between 1728 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 1,118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francis Hutcheson is one of the central figures in eighteenth-century moral philosophy. Read widely in Britain, France, Germany, and America, he influenced philosophers ranging from his student Adam Smith to Kant. After the initial reaction to his first major work, Inquiry into the Original of Our Ideas of Beauty and Virtue (1725), Hutcheson took stock of his critics and wrote An Essay on the Nature and Conduct of the Passions and Affections, with Illustrations on the Moral Sense. The first half of the work, the Essay, presents a rich moral psychology built on a theory of the passions and an account of motivation deepening and augmenting the doctrine of moral sense developed in the Inquiry. The Illustrations on the Moral Sense is a brilliant attack on rationalist moral theories and the font of many of the arguments against the motivating power of reason taken up by Hume and used to this day." "Despite intrinsic merits of the Essay on the Nature and Conduct of the Passions and the Illustrations on the Moral Sense, and their vast influence, the original English-language text has until recently been available only in expensive reprint. The Liberty Fund edition makes Hutcheson's seminal work widely available in English in a critical edition collating the first edition of 1728 with Hutcheson's revision of 1742"--Jacket

Francis Hutcheson: an inquiry concerning beauty, order, harmony, design by Francis Hutcheson( Book )

7 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

THE SENSE OF BEAUTY: A FIRST APPROXIMATION It is generally acknowledged that during the first half of the eighteenth century a profound change was wrought in the theory of art and natural beauty. To this period we owe the establishment of the modem system of the arts. 1 In England, the notion of a separate and autonomous disci pline devoted solely to art and to beauty came into being through the concept of "aesthetic disinterestedness." 2 In addition, emphasis in the theory of art shifted from object to subject - from the work of art to the perceiver and critic. Focal point for this change was the sense of beauty which, in concert with the moral sense of the British school, represented a dominant force in Enlightenment value theory. It is Francis Hutcheson who, more than anyone else, can be thought of as the founder and principal spokesman of this philosophical coterie. If the aesthetic sense was instrumental in the transfer of interest, in the philosophy of art, from object to perceiver, the aesthetic and moral senses together were no less important in a parallel transference of value judgment from the rational to the sensate

A short introduction to moral philosophy, in three books; containing the elements of ethicks and the law of nature by Francis Hutcheson( Book )

34 editions published between 1747 and 2005 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The celebrated division of philosophy among the ancients was into the rational or logical, the natural and the moral. Their moral philosophy contained these parts, ethicks taken more strictly, teaching the nature of virtue and regulating the internal dispositions; and the knowledge of the law of nature. This latter contained: 1. the doctrine of private rights, or the laws obtaining in natural liberty; 2. Oeconomicks, or the laws and rights of the several members of a family; and 3. Politicks, shewing the various plans of civil government, and the rights of fates with respect to each other. The following books contain the elements of these several branches of moral philosophy; which if they are carefully studied may give the youth an easier access to the well known and admired works either of the ancients, Plato, Aristotle, Xenophon, Cicero; or of the moderns, Grotius, Cumberland, Puffendorf, Harrington and others, upon this branch of philosophy"--Book.

"Francis Hutcheson was one of the most important figures in the Scottish Enlightenment. He influenced not only leading thinkers, such as David Hume, Adam Smith, and Thomas Reid, but also a wider circle of intellectuals in England, Europe, and America." "Hutcheson viewed philosophy as a practical matter, not merely a theoretical exercise, and in his Philosophiae Moralis Instituto Compendiaria, we have his arguments for how to live a virtuous, useful, engaged life based on belief in the benevolence of God, the harmony of the universe, and the sociable dispositions of human beings. The aim was to provide a text for university students, putting forward Hutcheson's optimistic view of human nature and its relationship to the Divinity, as well as providing students with the knowledge of natural and civil law required by the university curriculum." "In this Liberty Fund edition, the Latin text of 1745, Philosophiae Moralis Instituto Compendiaria, is printed facing its 1747 English translation, A Short Introduction to Moral Philosophy. Passages left untranslated in the 1747 edition have been rendered into English for the first time, and the anonymous translator's interpolations have been identified. Luigi Turco's introduction and extensive annotations provide context, references, and, where needed, clarification for the modern reader."--Jacket
