Biography

I am Professor Emeritus (Political Theory) and Honorary Professorial Research Fellow. I've been at Glasgow since 1970. I work at the interface between politics, history and philosophy and have written many books and papers, on Luxury and especially on aspects of the Scottish Enlightenment and have made frequent visits to Japan and China to lecture in that area.  On a wider front I have an interest in what I call 'the philosophical anthropology of politics' (what it is about being human that appears to call forth a response that is labelled political). I am an elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
