About this item

As an undergraduate Scott happened upon two old books in a Dundee secondhand bookstall: Social Evolution (1894) and Group Mind (1920); which made him aware of the pre-history of the current sociological concerns to which he was being exposed to as a student. Continuing to hang out in secondhand bookshops, he later found Philosophy of Social Progress (1912). Scott’s book draws on all the earlier strands, as he aims to rehabilitate the authors who contributed to history, rather than relics of another age. While these social theorists were products of their time and insights and reflect the arguments, language, biases and prejudices of those times, many of their substantive ideas have a continuing relevance.
