philosopher (1778-1820). Browns main work was his Lectures
on the Philosophy of the Human Mind, which was published posthumously
in 1820. Though associated by some
with the Common Sense school of philosophy, Browns philosophy was much
more sceptical and empiricist than that of e.g. Thomas Reid or Dugald Stewart.
He was a pupil of Stewart, and was Professor of Moral Philosophy at the
University of Edinburgh from 1810-1820.
