  1. The Human Good and the Science of Man.Ryan Patrick Hanley - 2022 - History of European Ideas 48 (1):23-32.
    ABSTRACT David Hume and Adam Smith are often regarded as preeminent contributors to the eighteenth-century Scottish ‘science of man.’ For our understanding of Hume’s and Smith’s contributions to this project, scholars today are especially indebted to Nicholas Phillipson, who influentially and persuasively demonstrated how the science of man that they developed sought to account for social progress as the result of man’s natural love of improvement in the face of conditions of indigence and want.

  • What Constituted Historical Evidence of the New World? Closeness and Distance in William Robertson and Francisco Javier Clavijero.Silvia Sebastiani - 2014 - Modern Intellectual History 11 (3):677-695.
    According to Gerbi's classical study, the “dispute of the New World” entered a new phase in the 1780s, one marked by voices coming from the Americas. New questions were then raised about the writing of history, its method, scope and proofs. This essay pursues a dual-track enquiry, confronting theHistory of America by the Presbyterian minister William Robertson, a leading figure of the Scottish Enlightenment, with theStoria antica del Messico by the Mexican exiled Jesuit Francisco Javier Clavijero. The two works, one (...)
