Woozley gave us the 1st smooth reprint of Reid's Essays at the highbrow Powers of guy - in reality the 1st variation of any paintings through Reid to seem in print because the Philosophical Works used to be edited within the 19th century by means of Sir William Hamilton. yet Reid's aesthetic philosophy has now not obtained its due. Woozley, in abridging the Essays, passed over the entire ultimate essay, "On Taste," that is the single prolonged paintings on aesthetic idea that Reid ever released. Raphael, being basically in Reid's ethical idea, comprehend ably, handled aesthetics in simple terms because it was once relating to morality. And Grave, even though he did current a brief and extremely cogent resume of Reid's aes thetic place, evidently chanced on himself attracted to different components of Reid's philosophy. There are, after all, a few debts of Reid's aes thetic conception to be present in many of the experiences of eighteenth-century British aesthetics and feedback. None, despite the fact that, appears to be like to me to do any form of justice to the philosophical questions which Reid treats in his aesthetics and philosophy of art.
