An Inquiry into the Human Mind by Thomas Reid
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Thomas Reid's "Inquiry" has long been recognized as a classic text in the philosophy of mind. Reid scholars however, have been aware of the lack of full textual evidence when analyzing the composition of the piece. this work therefore presents a complete, critically edited text of the "Inquiry", based on the fourth life-time edition (published in 1785), which contains notes including biographical details and allusions, translations, references to secondary literature and selected passages from Reid's MSS.
