Essays on Philosophical Subjects, with Dugald Stewart's "Account of Adam Smith"

Adam Smith
Edited by W. P. D. Wightman, J. C. Bryce, and I. S. Ross

Glasgow Edition of the Works of Adam Smith

Includes several essays covering aspects of the history of science (including astronomy, ancient physics, and ancient logic), as well as a discussion of the external senses, showing that Smith shared with philosophers the preoccupation with epistemological problems. The others are concerned with aesthetics and the philosophy of art.
