Known today mainly as a teacher of Adam Smith (1723–90) and an influence on David Hume (1711–76), Francis Hutcheson (1694–1746) was a first-rate thinker whose work deserves study on its own merit. While his most important contribution to the history of ideas was likely his theory of an innate sense of morality, Hutcheson also wrote on a wide variety of other subjects, including art, psychology, law, politics, economics, metaphysics, and logic. Spanning his entire literary career, this collection brings together selections from Hutcheson's greater and lesser known works, including his youthful "Thoughts" (1725) on Thomas Hobbes’ (1588–1679) egoistic theory of laughter.

Keywords: Adam Smith, David Hume, common sense, morality, philosophy, laughter, beauty, harmony, perception, sensation, wisdom, fable of the bees, evil, virtue, vice, passions, moral philosophy, God, religion, truth, political philosophy, natural law
