Summary

Francis Hutcheson (1694-1746) is known for being one of the first philosophers of the Scottish Enlightenment. He influenced David Hume, Adam Smith, and Thomas Reid and even Immanuel Kant discussed his theories. Hutcheson was born in Ireland into a family of Scottish Presbyterians. He was one of the most brilliant professors of the University of Glasgow. He was the best advocate of the theories of moral sense and moral sentimentalism and was one of the pioneers of aesthetics. His moral and political principles had a strong influence not only in Europe but also in colonial America.

Key works Hutcheson’s most read works are his Inquiry into the Original of our Ideas of Beauty and Virtue (first edition in 1725, see modern edition 2008) and his Essay on the Nature and Conduct of the Passions and Affections, with Illustrations upon the Moral sense (first edition in 1728, see modern edition 1742). The Essay, for example, gives an excellent account of the distinction he makes between justification and motivation of moral action and the major part of his aesthetic philosophy is contained in his Inquiry. There you can also find the phrase “greatest happiness of the greatest number” which will later be associated with Utilitarianism. The great influence the Stoics had on his philosophical thinking led him to work on a translation of The Meditations of M.Aurelius Antoninus from the Greek (1742, modern edition 2008). A System of Moral Philosophy (1755), published after his death, gives a complete revised system of the moral sense, in response to the “Self Interest Moralists” and to the attacks against the “Rational Moralists”.  The standard modern edition of Hutcheson’s work is the reprint (facsimiles of eighteenth-century editions of the individual works) by Georg Olms Verlag (1990).  Hutcheson’s writings are also available online on the website of The Online Library of Liberty. For the Liberty Fund online edition of the Inquiry (1726), see Fehige 2005.
Introductions Introduction articles include Broadie 2001 (Stanford Encyclopedia) and Rothbard 2011. About Hutcheson's politics, see Knud Haakonssen, for example 1996 and Gobetti 1992. On Natural Law and Rights, see Gregg 2009. On Hutcheson’s theory of aesthetics, see Dabney Townsend's works (2004, 2004, 1993). See also Kivy 2003. On Hutcheson's moral theory, see Stephen Darwall (1997). For a panoramic view of the articulation of Hutcheson’s moral sense philosophy between the two main influences of Locke and Shaftesbury, see Carey 2000. Bishop 1996 provides an introduction to moral motivation and the role of benevolence in Hutcheson’s works. Mortensen 1995 gives a good view of the articulation between Hutcheson’s aesthetics, social and political contexts. Scott 1900 remains the most detailed and complete introduction on Hutcheson’s life, influences and historical context.

    Francis Hutcheson on Liberty.Ruth Boeker - forthcoming - Royal Institute of Philosophy Supplement.
    This paper aims to reconstruct Francis Hutcheson’s thinking about liberty. Since he does not offer a detailed treatment of philosophical questions concerning liberty in his mature philosophical writings I turn to a textbook on metaphysics. We can assume that he prepared the textbook during the 1720s in Dublin. This textbook deserves more attention. First, it sheds light on Hutcheson’s role as a teacher in Ireland and Scotland. Second, Hutcheson’s contributions to metaphysical disputes are more original than sometimes assumed. To appreciate (...)

    There is an inherent phenomenological tendency in British moral theory, especially from John Locke onward. The purpose of his Essay was, he said, to consider the discerning faculties of a man, as they are employed about the objects which they have to do with. This is language that might serve well in a general description of the work of Husserl and other phenomenologists.

    Hume considered An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals incomparably the best of all his writings. In the argument advanced here, I propose that Hume's preference for the Enquiry may be linked to his admiration of Cicero, and his work, De Officiis. Cicero's attempt to discover the honestum of morality in De Officiis had a particular relevance and appeal for philosophers of the early eighteenth century who were seeking to establish what they called the foundation of morality. One of those (...)

    My aim in this paper is to discuss Kant’s engagement with what is arguably the core feature of Hutcheson’s moral sense theory, namely the idea that the moral sense is the foundation of moral judgement. In section one I give an account of Hutcheson’s conception of the moral sense. This sense is a perceptive faculty that explains our ability both to feel a particular kind of pleasure upon perceiving benevolence, and to appraise such benevolence as morally good on the basis (...)

    Kant on Moral Satisfaction.Michael Walschots - 2017 - Kantian Review 22 (2):281-303.
    This paper gives an account of Kant’s concept of self-contentment (Selbstzufriedenheit), i.e. the satisfaction involved in the performance of moral action. This concept is vulnerable to an important objection: if moral action is satisfying, it might only ever be performed for the sake of this satisfaction. I explain Kant’s response to this objection and argue that it is superior to Francis Hutcheson’s response to a similar objection. I conclude by showing that two other notions of moral satisfaction in Kant’s moral (...)

    Moral Sense Theory and the Development of Kant's Ethics.Michael Walschots - 2016 - Dissertation, University of Western Ontario
    This dissertation investigates a number of ways in which an eighteenth century British philosophical movement known as “moral sense theory” influenced the development of German philosopher Immanuel Kant’s (1724-1804) moral theory. I illustrate that Kant found both moral sense theory’s conception of moral judgement and its conception of moral motivation appealing during the earliest stage of his philosophical development, but eventually came to reject its conception of moral judgement, though even in his early writings Kant preserves certain features of its (...)

    Among the most animating debates in eighteenth-century British ethics was the debate over psychological egoism, the view that our most basic desires are self-interested. An important episode in that debate, less well known than it should be, was the exchange between Francis Hutcheson and John Clarke of Hull. In the early editions of his Inquiry into Virtue, Hutcheson argued ingeniously against psychological egoism; in his Foundation of Morality, Clarke argued ingeniously against Hutcheson’s arguments. Later, Hutcheson attempted new arguments against psychological (...)

New York: Palgrave Macmillan. pp. 203-222.
    In the 1720s Francis Hutcheson developed a systematic account of the origins of ethical judgments that would have a profound influence on later writers. Ethical judgments, he argues, arise from the perceptions of internal senses that are, themselves, rooted in ‘Passions and Affections’. This paper describes his account and draws attention to an important tension at its heart. When judging particular cases, Hutcheson praises kindly, generous, and merciful affections as exemplary. But when he proposes a mathematical formula for ‘computing the (...)

    This chapter examines the different answers that British moralists gave to the question ‘what does virtue consist in?’ Rather than as a royal road to present-day views in ethics, their answers are best understood when considered against the background of early modern natural law theories and their projected metaphysics of morals. The emerging ‘science of morality’ dealt with the metaphysical problem of determining what sort of thing virtue is. Considered from this vantage point, the British moralists struggled with the problem (...)

    Moral Philosophy of Francis Hutcheson.J. D. Bishop - unknown
    The main object of this thesis is to explain in a systematic fashion Francis Hutcheson's moral theory. Such an attempt will necessarily involve a discussion of the various philosophical problems which are inherent in his theory. For example, I discuss the issue of whether Hutcheson's theory of the moral sense is to be interpreted in an intuitionist or an emotivist fashion. It is argued that some aspects of his moral sense theory favour the former and some the latter interpretation, Hutcheson's (...)

    IntroductionEthical intuitionists have never known quite what to make of the emotions. Generally speaking, these philosophers fall into two camps: rational intuitionists and moral sense theorists. And by my lights, neither camp has been able to tell a convincing story about the exact role and significance of emotion in moral judgment. Rational intuitionists are for the most part too dismissive of the emotions, either regarding emotions as little more than distractions to moral judgment,Samuel Clarke, for instance, after naming our “faculties (...)

    While Kant in his pre-critical work expressed appreciative, albeit reserved, sympathy toward the British moral sense school, in his main works on moral philosophy he harshly rejects the idea that we have a specific moral sense. This change in attitude is, of course, connected to Kant's discovery and formulation of a purely rational moral principle. Still one might ask whether Kant's critique of moral sense theory was really justified. To answer this question, I shall first examine what Kant understands the, (...)

    The thesis examines the ontology of value in the ethical theories of Shaftesbury, Hutcheson and Hume. These three philosophers jointly constitute the moral sense school, in eighteenth century British philosophy. ;Ethical objectivism and ethical subjectivism, as I will use these terms, are contrasting claims about the nature of value. 'Ethical objectivism' refers roughly to any theory according to which moral values are or are logically entailed by matters of fact which are independent of the evaluative responses of persons considering the (...)

    The Delights of Humanity: Moral Perception, Reason, and Feeling in Francis Hutcheson's Moral Sense Theory.Susan Marie Purviance - 1987 - Dissertation, University of California, Santa Barbara
    Francis Hutcheson proposes a normative theory which both depends upon and advances an empiricist epistemology. He characterizes moral judgments of virtue on an analogy to judgments of beauty. Moral qualities are a special case of aesthetic qualities, and both are perceived by means of feeling. I argue that if Hutcheson is right, the moral sense theory needs a theory of moral sensibility and an account of refined judgment, as well as a theory of moral taste. ;A theory of moral taste (...)
