What I Am Reading

I have just come across a new book entitled Anarchy as Order: The History and Future of Civic Humanity by Mohammed A. Bamyeh. I do not know Bamyeh, but he is a professor of sociology at the University of Pittsburgh. I will read the book with interest.

I am also reviewing two books:

1. Alexander Broadie's new
A History of Scottish Philosophy for the Journal of Scottish Philosophy. Broadie is a professor of logic and rhetoric in the department of history at the University of Glasglow, and a distinguished scholar of the Scottish Enlightenment as well as medieval Scottish philosophy. This book looks to be a massive, and impressive, accomplishment.

2. Tony Aspromourgos's
The Science of Wealth: Adam Smith and the Framing of Political Economy for the Adam Smith Review. I do not know Professor Aspromourgos, but he is a professor of economics and business at the University of Sydney. Since the topic of this book is very close to much of my own work, I look forward to reading it as well.

As always, I welcome suggestions for things I should read. Either post them as comments or send them to me at jimotteson (at) gmail (dot) com.
