Edited by James Moore and Michael Silverthorne, with an Introduction by James Moore
Translated by Michael Silverthorne
Until the publication of this Liberty Fund edition, all but one of the works contained in Logic, Metaphysics, and the Natural Sociability of Mankind were available only in Latin. This milestone English translation will provide a general audience with insight into Hutcheson’s thought.
Francis Hutcheson (1694–1746) was educated at the University of Glasgow, where he assumed the chair of moral philosophy in 1729.
James Moore is Emeritus Professor of Political Science at Concordia University in Montreal.
