Para Reid, esta expresión es sinónimo de una capacidad innata a la naturaleza humana, que la hace poseedora de principios incuestionables, compartidos por el filósofo y por el individuo común, mediante los cuales la mente aprehende las verdades básicas del pensamiento y de las cosas. Los elementos primarios del conocimiento están ahí y no cabe cuestionar su existencia; los datos de nuestra conciencia original han de presumirse verdaderos
Practical ethics : being lectures and papers on natural religion, self-government, natural jurisprudence, and the law of nations by Thomas Reid( Book )

11 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the originator of the Scottish school of "common sense" philosophy and the foremost contemporary critic of David Hume's moral skepticism, Thomas Reid (1710-1796) played a hitherto unknown role in applying the tradition of natural law to morality and politics. When Reid succeeded Adam Smith as professor of moral philosophy in Glasgow in 1764, he taught a course covering pneumatology (theory of mind), practical ethics, and politics. In presenting for the first time the philosopher's manuscript lectures and papers on practical ethics, Knud Haakonssen shows how these writings not only add depth to Reid's criticism of Hume but also clarify his own social, moral, and political thought. As a whole, Reid's Practical Ethics constitutes a most significant addition of source material for the study of the Scottish Enlightenment. The papers assembled here demonstrate the extent to which the moral philosophy of the Enlightenment was influenced by natural jurisprudence. At the same time they reveal Reid's involvement with republican, utopian, and radical themes and elucidate the relations between religion and politics in the Enlightenment. Haakonssen's introduction is the first substantial systematic treatment of Reid's moral-political thought, connecting it with his general philosophy and setting it in the context of his life and time

17 editions published between 1937 and 1999 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Reid, contemporary and philosophy foe of David Hume, was the chief figure in the group of philosophers consituting the Scottish school of common sense. Between 1753 and 1762, Reid delivered four 'philosophical orations' at graduation ceremonies at King's College, Aberdeen. This volume contains the first English translation of those Latin orations, which reveal Reid's philosophical opinions during his formative years." [Back cover]

Thomas Reid on the animate creation : papers relating to the life sciences by Thomas Reid( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume falls into two main parts, the first of which contains a detailed introduction. This provided the first published account of Reid's reflections on the highly contraversial theories surrounding muscular motion and the reproduction of plants and animals, and relates them to the broader Enlightenment debates on these issues. It also contains the first systematic reconstruction of Reid's opposition to materialism, and views his polemics against the noted Dissenter Joseph Priestley in terms of their differing interpretations of the Newtonian legacy, their conflicting philosophical assumptions, and the cultural politics of Common Sense philosophy in the 1770s. The second part reproduces a selection of Reid's most significant papers on the life sciences, including his Glasgow Literary Society discourses on muscular motion and on Priestley's materialism, as well as other manuscripts which document the development of his scientific ideas
An inquiry into the human mind on the principles of common sense by Thomas Reid( Book )

71 editions published between 1764 and 2009 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fabric of the human mind is curious and wonderful, as well as that of the human body. The faculties of the one are with no less wisdom adapted to their several ends, than the organs of the other. Nay, it is reasonable to think, that as the mind is a nobler work and of a higher order than the body, even more of the wisdom and skill of the divine architect hath been employed in its structure. It is therefore a subject highly worthy of inquiry on its own account, but still more worthy on account of the extensive influence which the knowledge of it hath over every other branch of science"--Chapter.

Thomas Reid on logic, rhetoric, and the fine arts : papers on the culture of the mind by Thomas Reid( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Reid saw the three subjects of logic, rhetoric, and the fine arts as closely cohering aspects of one endeavor that he called the culture of the mind. This was a topic on which Reid lectured for many years in Glasgow, and this volume presents as near a reconstruction of these lectures as is now possible." "In addition, this volume continues the 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 earlier editions of Reid's works and is now restored to the state in which Reid left it."--Jacket

Thomas Reid on practical ethics : lectures and papers on natural religion, self-government, natural jurisprudence and the law of nations by Thomas Reid( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pervasiveness of Protestant natural law in the early modern period and its significance in the Scottish Enlightenment have long been recognised. This book reveals that Thomas Reid (1710-1796)? the great contemporary of David Hume and Adam Smith? also worked in this tradition. When Reid succeeded Adam Smith as professor of moral philosophy in Glasgow in 1764, he taught a course covering pneumatology, practical ethics, and politics. This section on practical ethics took its starting point from the system of natural law and rights published by Francis Hutcheson. Knud Haakonssen has reconstr
