Essays on David Hume, medical men and the Scottish Enlightenment : industry, knowledge and humanity by Roger L Emerson( )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 1,677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Hume, writing in 1752, commented that 'industry, knowledge and humanity are linked together by an indissoluble chain'. Collectively this volume of essays embraces many of the topics which Hume included under 'industry, knowledge and humanity': from the European Enlightenment and the Scots' relation to it, to Scottish social history and its relation to religion, science and medicine. Overarching themes of what it meant to be enlightened in the eighteenth century are considered alongside more specific studies of notable figures of the period, such as Archibald Campbell, 3rd Duke of Argyll, and David Hume, and the training and number of Scottish medical students. Together, the volume provides an opportunity to step back and reconsider the Scottish Enlightenment in its broader context and to consider what new directions this field of study might take."--BOOK JACKET

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A reflection, in chapters, on the lives of members of the author's family, their friends and neighbours who lived in the counties of Orleans and Caledonia between the end of the eighteenth and the middle of the twentieth centuries. Hard-working, God-fearing, and often clever, these were literate, respectable, and fairly well-off folks. They were, also, all too human -- and certainly not always 'nice' or 'admirable'. The history that spills out from this archive -- of documents, letters and postcards, diaries, photographs, and oral history -- encompasses family tales, curses and scandals; working lives of farmers, store-keepers and merchants, and railway men; education, teenage life, and courtship; building homes and becoming consumers; serving in the militia and in war; early tourism, and local entertainments; with a discursion on Vermont family names along the way. It is a fascinating story, generously illustrated with reproductions of documents and photographs" -- Publisher's description
