Francis Hutcheson in Dublin, 1719-30: The Crucible of His Thought
"Hutcheson was Irish by birth and Scottish by education, making his cultural identity intriguingly complex. The book traces the origins of Hutcheson's thought to the peculiar nature of his experience while in Dublin. A Presbyterian, Hutcheson was excluded from active politics in Ireland and yet he was a friend of many in the political establishment. This position of 'established outsider' stimulated Hutcheson to write. In his work, Hutcheson formulated an early version of what Adam Ferguson later termed 'civil society'. The book thereby contributes to debates about the Scottish Enlightenment, political theory and the religious politics of 18th-century Ireland."--BOOK JACKET.
