James Hutton and the History of Geology
In James Hutton and the History of Geology, Dennis R. Dean provides a more accurate and complete account of Hutton?s major geological writings than any that has hitherto appeared. He examines the growth and development of Hutton?s thought in the light of his training and experience in medicine, agriculture, and philosophy, locating him within the intellectual milieux of Edinburgh at the height of the Scottish Enlightenment.
