Simon Evans presents: Alas, Smith and Hume!

Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2024

Starring: Simon Evans

From the host of Radio 4’s Simon Evans Goes to Market, comes this humorous, even mischievous celebration of the friendship at the heart of the Scottish Enlightenment, and a wider examination of its unique intellectual legacy. From the birth of political economy as a discipline, through the navigations of a genial empiricist in a deeply pious world, to the single greatest unleashing of talent per capita in the history of the modern world. It has never been more important to remind Scots of their birthright of robust and vigorous debate!
