Summary
"In the history of America's founding, the names of Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and other founding fathers loom large. But few Americans today would recognize the role played by such men as Francis Hutcheson, Adam Smith, Thomas Reid, Dugald Stewart, David Hume, and other philosophers of the Scottish Enlightenment." "In the Scottish Enlightenment, America's founders themselves found the philosophical underpinnings for a government conceived and defined with the intent to promote economic progress in commerce based on private capital means."--Jacket
