There has been a long tradition of philosophising in Scotland. After the Reformation, Scottish philosophers were no less interested than their predecessors had been in the philosophy being done there. Scottish philosophy is also inextricably bound up with mathematics and the natural sciences. This book has been written to demonstrate the longevity and richness of the Scottish philosophical tradition. Scottish philosophy is not just David Hume nor even just the philosophy of the Scottish Enlightenment; it flourished for half a millennium before the Enlightenment and has outlived that wondrous event by two centuries. It is unfinished business, and this book is perforce an interim report.
