Nuovi accenti sulla filosofia scozzese. Intorno a un convegno su Dugald Stewart

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


The increasing interest in the philosophy of Thomas Reid has led scholars committed to the study of the Scottish Enlightenment to pay attention to some rather "neglected" authors who characterised that period. One of them is Dugald Stewart (1753-1828), Reid's most famous successor at the guide of the "common sense" school, philosopher and academic teacher of great reputation between the eighteenth and the nineteenth century. This paper tries to give a brief account of some of the central topics of Stewart's philosophy, taking as a starting point a recently published biography and a symposium held in November 2003 at the University of Aberdeen.
