Summary During the eighteenth-century Enlightenment, Scotland and England produced well-know figures as David Hume, Adam Smith, and John Locke. Ireland's contribution to this revolution in Western thought has received much less attention. Offering a corrective to the view that Ireland was intellectually stagnant during this period, The Irish Enlightenment considers a range of artists, writers, and philosophers who were full participants in the pan-European experiment that forged the modern world.
