A team of leading experts in the field explore the significance of Reids thought in his time and ours, focusing in particular on three broad themes: mind, knowledge, and value.

Together, they argue that Reids philosophy is about developing agents in a rich world of objects and values, agents with intellectual and active powers whoseregularity is productive. Though such agents are equipped at first with rudimentary abilities, those abilities are responsive.

Our powers consist in a fundamental and on-going engagement with the world, a world that calls on us to be flexible, sensitive, astute, and ultimately, practical. Thomas Reid onMind, Knowledge, and Value represents both the vitality of Reids work, and the ways in which current philosophers are engaging with his ideas.
