Along with Wynne’s work Ferguson took [The Procedure, Extent, and] Limits of Human Understanding, a critique of Locke, published anonymously by Peter Browne, Bishop of Cork and Ross (1728). Robert Sheringham’s 44 Adam Ferguson: History, Progress and Human Nature De Anglorum gentis origine disceptatio [Treatise on the Origin of the English People] (1670) was another choice, as was [Roman History] by Dio Cassius, edited by N.

11 Suffice it to say that Scotland looms predictably large for each of these writers not only as a familiar and convenient source of specific historical examples but also from time to time as the main focus for more concerted argument and polemic. However, An Essay on the History of Civil Society is strangely and singularly different from these companion pieces that emerged at roughly the same time, in approximately the same intellectual environment and from within Ferguson’s own Edinburgh-based circle of friends and colleagues.

Indeed, it is hard to imagine the Essay having taken the form that it did without Ferguson’s profound indebtedness to a rich tradition of Scottish historiography, as well as to contemporary social and political commentary on the country and its distinctive circumstances. It is with reconstructing some aspects of this unacknowledged Scottish context to Ferguson’s greatest work, and also with offering a potential explanation for his unwillingness to foreground his keen interest in Scotland itself, that the remainder of the present essay is chiefly concerned.
