Common Sense Philosophy in the Scottish Enlightenment

University of Edinburgh. Organisé par The British Society for the History of Philosophy

vendredi 9 mai 2014, Angélique Thébert


Of the distinctive ideas associated with the Scottish Enlightenment, the so-called Scottish School of Common Sense dominated late eighteenth and early nineteenth-century Scottish moral philosophy. From its Scottish origin in the Aberdeen Philosophical Society (also known as the “Wise Club”) and some disagreement over the term “common sense”, Common Sense philosophy gradually became known in the wider Republic of Letters as Scottish philosophy. This three-day conference will advance a better understanding of the early development of Scottish Common Sense philosophy, philosophers associated with the Scottish School of Common Sense, and the reasons why this philosophical system flourished and later declined.
Title of Angélique Thébert’s conference on the subject : “Common Sense and First Principles : Dispelling an Ambiguity”.
