Henry Home, Lord Kames, was by nature an advocate for reform and improvement and stood at the heart of the modernizing and liberalizing movement now known as the Scottish Enlightenment. The reaction to his "Essays on the Principles of Morality and Natural Religion" was a defining moment in the establishment of the predominance of moderation in the Church of Scotland. Divided into three books, Kames' "Sketches of the History of Man" draws together the concerns of many of his earlier works.The second book takes as its subject man in the public sphere and explores the implications of his natural 'appetite for society'. Kames develops the notion that political, legal, and financial institutions are best regulated when it is understood that they are outgrowths of aspects of human nature.BOOK TWO ONLY.
