These classic texts from Smith, Hume, and Washington offer us a new lens into philosophical life. Though contemporaries, these three greats are rarely examined together. These six distinctive volumes provide a humanistic glimpse of three unique lives and perspectives, all engaging with important questions about humans as moral, political, and economic beings. Readers who are interested in the Scottish Enlightenment, the American and French Revolutions, and other aspects of 18th-century history that are relevant to today will enjoy digging deeper through this curated bundle.
