Essays on the intellectual powers of man by Thomas Reid( Book )

145 editions published between 1785 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reid's Common Sense philosophy answers these problems by suggesting that skeptics, such as Hume, unavoidably affirm what they purport to deny, namely, the existence of a stable external world, of other minds, of the continuity of their own minds, and of their own and other people's ability to ascribe and accept responsibility for actions. We can understand all of this by proper empirical observation and philosophical analysis of the activity of the mind. Reid's major positive contribution to philosophy is a detailed account of the various innate powers of the mind. While particularly influential in the first half of the nineteenth century, Reid's work has retained a significant role in philosophy, not least in recent years. At the same time, his role in the Scottish Enlightenment is becoming much better understood."--BOOK JACKET
The philosophical orations of Thomas Reid : delivered at graduation ceremonies in King's College, Aberdeen, 1753, 1756, 1759, 1762 by Thomas Reid( )

23 editions published between 1917 and 1999 in English and held by 1,720 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." --

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

9 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 412 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

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

15 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 250 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
Thomas Reid on logic, rhetoric, and the fine arts : papers on the culture of the mind by Thomas Reid( Book )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and held by 241 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
