About the Authors
  • Widely acknowledged as the principal architect of Scottish common sense philosophy, Thomas Reid is increasingly recognized today as one of the finest philosophers of the eighteenth century. Combining a sophisticated response to the skeptical and idealist views of his day, Reid's thought represents an important alternative to Humean skepticism, Kantian idealism and Cartesian rationalism. This work covers not only his philosophy but his scientific research and extensive historical influence.

    • Only comprehensive overview of Reid
    • As with all other Companions it is both systematic and accessible

    'The Cambridge Companion to Thomas Reid is easily the best guide yet to Reid's thought as a whole. Every aspect of Reid's philosophy is covered, from his epistemology and account of perception, through his studies of testimony and memory, to this theory of action and his moral philosophy, and further on still to his philosophy of religion and philosophy of art.' The Times Literary Supplement
