Philosophy of common sense, 18th- and early 19th-century Scottish school of Thomas Reid, Adam Ferguson, Dugald Stewart, and others, who held that in the actual perception of the average, unsophisticated man, sensations are not mere ideas or subjective impressions but carry with them the belief in corresponding qualities as belonging to external objects.

Such beliefs, Reid insisted, “belong to the common sense. fI6 PHILOSOPHY OF COMMON SENSE upon accurate reflection, not only to be different things, but as unlike as pain is to the point of a sword." 1 In every case the sensible quality must be distinguished from the sensation; and in no case is the sensible quality dependent for its existence on the sensation.

Thomas Reid and David Hume feature prominently as influential authors of competing ideas in the history and philosophy of common sense.

This chapter considers a few ingredients that are arguably central to the common sense philosophy, and indicates some consequent problems concerning the question of membership of the Scottish school, starting by addressing the work by Thomas Reid. Reid does not undertake a definition of ‘mind’, but he says enough to indicate what he is writing about: ‘By the mind of a man, we understand.

The Scottish Philosophy of Common Sense. By S. Grave. (Oxford, Clarendon Press Pp. Price 35s.). Alan R. White - - Philosophy 36 () As Paul Wood argues in his chapter in the volume, the relative neglect of Scottish Common Sense Philosophy among historians has meant that its genesis remains obscure (), a lacuna that Common Sense in the Scottish Enlightenment goes some way to filling.

The volume's first essay looks at seventeenth-century anticipations of Common Sense. The Journal of Scottish Philosophy (JSP) publishes innovative work by philosophers and historians of ideas on all aspects and every period of the Scottish philosophical tradition - philosophical psychology, metaphysics, philosophy of science, ethics and moral philosophy, political and social theory, from the late scholastics of the 15th century through the 18th century Enlightenment.

(Peirce called his version "critical common Alma mater: University of Aberdeen.The influence of the German philosophical movement was brought into the Scottish philosophical tradition by Sir William Hamilton who combined Reid's common-sense philosophy with logic and Kant's philosophy.

His essays on a review of Victor Cousin’s lectures and “The Philosophy of Perception” brought attention among the community to Kant and post-Kantian philosophy.The Philosophy of Rhetoric has a practical educational purpose, but it engages in the unmistakable Scottish Enlightenment project of a ‘science of human nature’, as well as revealing the influence of Reid’s philosophical conception of ‘common sense’.
