Below is a list of 249 English-language philosophical texts published in Britain between 1650 and 1830, by 60 authors (48 male and 12 female). Our aim is to provide free and high-quality digital editions of all of the works on this list, alongside tools for performing sophisticated searches and comparative textual analyses. Note however that this project is still in the early stages. So far we have prepared texts by Mary Astell, George Berkeley, David Hume, Francis Hutcheson, John Locke, Bernard Mandeville, John Norris, and Lord Shaftesbury [Anthony Ashley Cooper].
