common sense school




A group of Scottish thinkers, include Thomas Reid and Douglas Stewart, who, reacting against the idealism of George Berkeley and the skepticism of David Hume, affirmed that the truths apparent to the common man – the existence of material objects, the reality of causality, and so on – were genuine, reliable, and not to be questioned.
