This book reveals the history of how the vast landscape of moral philosophy was applied to the specific territories of beauty - in nature, aesthetics and ethics - during the eighteenth-century Scottish Enlightenment. The author explores a variety of sources, from academic lectures and institutional record, to popular texts such as newspapers and pamphlets, to show how the idea that beauty and art made individuals and society more virtuous was elevated and understood in Scottish society.
