批判现代商业文明的种种弊端,揭露社会腐化堕落和政治奴役产生的原因。

This book has been seen as an innovative attempt to reclaim the tradition of republican citizenship in modern Britain, and an influence on the ideas of republicanism held by the American Founding Fathers. The author emphasized the ability to put oneself in another’s shoes, saying “fellow-feeling” was so much an “appurtenance of human nature” as to be a “characteristic of the species.”

亚当·弗格森(1723-1816)是苏格兰的哲学家和历史家,是苏格兰启蒙运动中最具影响力的人物之一。他出生于位于苏格兰高地和低地之间的柏斯夏郡,是苏格兰启蒙思想家当中唯一和苏格兰高地有渊源的人。他曾任军牧,后来成为爱丁堡的心智哲学(当时称为pneumatics)与道德哲学教授(1764-85)。1767年他的《文明社会史论》出版,引起广大回响,并被翻译成多国语言。

Adam Ferguson (20 June 1723-22 February 1816) was a Scottish philosopher and historian of the Scottish Enlightenment. Ferguson was sympathetic to traditional societies, such as the Highlands, for producing courage and loyalty. He criticized commercial society as making men weak, dishonourable and unconcerned for their community. Ferguson has been called “the father of modern sociology.”
