She investigates the effect of attempts to separate ethics from religion, and to locate the foundation of morals in the constitution of human nature. Focussing on moral philosophy and the educational institutions in which (or in spite of which) these new ideas were developed, the book pays close attention to the movement of ideas through the British Isles, in particular the spread of Shaftesburys thought from England to Ireland and Scotland, and the varied reception of Humes scepticism north and south of the border.

It also demonstrates the enormous influence of Shaftesburys moral thought and the ultimate triumph of the English interpretation of Shaftesbury with the rise of Butler. Meticulously researched and accessibly written, this volume makes a vital contribution to our understanding of eighteenth-century thought.
