Lord Monboddo and Some of His Contemporaries free pdf Excerpt from Lord Monboddo and Some of His Contemporaries In this book I separate the letters of Lord Monboddo and his friends from the short biographical sketch which will precede them- instead of conjoining the letters with the story of his life. His career was not eventful, in the ordinary sense of the term. It was that of a scholarly Philosopher and Judge rather than a man of action, or a great lawyer- and his biography would have been broken up into shreds and patches, had the long essay-letters, written by himself and his friends, been inserted between the casual incidents of his professional life. His personality was a striking one, many-sided and unusually magnetic. It would have formed a picturesque centre round which to group the Scots "Men-of-Letters," who belonged to the latter half of the eighteenth century. The social life of that time - as brought out e.g. in the Ochter-tyre MSS. - was rich in incidents, both grave and gay. Numerous gossipy anecdotes, belonging to a transition period in Scottish opinion, as well as in manners and customs, could easily be collected, seria mixta jocis: and many characteristic personalities would be seen, David Hume being perhaps the central figure. But Hume has been already dealt with by several writers, from different points of view. It is the same with most of the other eighteenth-century representative "men of the time."
