From the Publisher"Hamilton’s attack on Brown was controversial and contributed to the later censure of Hamilton himself by his greatest opponent, John Stuart Mill, who admired Brown and inﬂicted massively disproportionate harm on Hamilton’s reputation". "This short edition of Brown’s Selected Philosophical Writings is a ﬁne additionto what is now becoming a most valuable collection of texts in The Library ofScottish Philosophy series"
"Thomas Brown’s untimely death in 1820 at the age of just 42 probably did moreharm in Scotland to the philosophy of Reid than Brown himself was accused ofcausing by Sir William Hamilton, just one decade later. Following Brown’s death,the highly prized Chair of Moral Philosophy at Edinburgh scandalously fell into thehands of John Wilson, the once famous ‘Christopher North’ of Blackwood’sMagazine fame".
