Synopsis

Important in the history of the Scottish Enlightenment and 18th-century literature and thought, James Beattie (1735-1803) was a figure of high reputation and influence in a variety of fields, including philosophy, poetry, belles-lettres, education, language and religion. He varied and valuable works in prose and verse are presented here. They form important source documents for all scholars of 18th-century thought. Each features a comprehensive introduction by Beattie scholar Professor Roger J. Robinson. This work contains Beattie's thoughts on the whole range of issues which he had pondered throughout his life. This work therefore conveys a fuller account of his ideas as a philosopher, poet, man of letters, moralist and Christian apologist than can be found either in his own prose or his letters.
