The “Science of Man”, as Hume described it (women were comprehended in his term), involved the study of human life in all its various aspects.
This project was located in the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities from 1995-1999 and is funded by the Scots at War Trust.
Scotland's Transatlantic Relations: The STAR Project continues to provide a locus for transatlantic research with a Scottish dimension; and through a variety of seminars, conferences, publication ventures and other collaborations.
The Institute and the University of Edinburgh marked the Tercentenary with a wide range of events throughout the year exploring the many aspects of Hume’s work and his legacy.
