I never thought I'd find myself reading an entire book on the Scottish Enlightenment.

What is more surprising, though, is that I actually understood what I was reading! Such are the benefits of doctoral research, I suppose. Alexander Broadie, the author, must himself have a brilliant mind, as much as the brilliant group of eighteenth-century minds that made up the Scottish Enlightenment.

Alexander Broadie - The Scottish Enlightenment (9781841586403), published Birlinn. Highly recommended.
