Essays on the active powers of the human mind by Thomas Reid( Book )

14 editions published between 1843 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 )

5 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 407 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

18 editions published between 1937 and 1999 in English and held by 297 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]

An inquiry into the human mind on the principles of common sense by Thomas Reid( Book )

67 editions published between 1764 and 2009 in English and held by 213 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 )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 203 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

Essays on the powers of the human mind by Thomas Reid( Book )

23 editions published between 1803 and 2009 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The division of the faculties of the human mind into Understanding and Will is very ancient, and has been very generally adopted; the former comprehending all our speculative, the latter all our active Powers. It is evidently the intention of our Maker, that man should be an active and not merely a speculative being. For this purpose, certain active powers have been given him, limited indeed in many respects, but suited to his rank and place in the creation. Our business is to manage these powers, by proposing to ourselves the best ends, planning the most proper system of conduct that is in our power, and executing it with industry and zeal. This is true wisdom; this is the very intention of our being. Every thing virtuous and praise-worthy must lie in the right use of our power; every thing vicious and blameable in the abuse of it. For in the right employment of our active power consists all the honour, dignity and worth of a man, and, in the abuse and perversion of it, all vice, corruption and depravity. We are distinguished from the brute-animals, not less by our active than by our speculative powers. The brutes are stimulated to various actions by their instincts, by their appetites, by their passions. But they seem to be necessarily determined by the strongest impulse, without any capacity of self-government. Since, therefore, the active powers of man make so important a part of his constitution, and distinguish him so eminently from his fellow animals, they deserve no less to be the subject of philosophical disquisition than his intellectual powers. A just knowledge of our powers, whether intellectual or active, is so far of real importance to us, as it aids us in the exercise of them. And every man must acknowledge, that to act properly is much more valuable than to think justly or reason acutely"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved)
