A bit about James Mackintosh ...

Sir James Mackintosh (October 24, 1765 - May 30, 1832), Scottish publicist, was undoubtedly one of the most cultured and catholic-minded men of his time. His studies and sympathies embraced almost every human interest, except pure science. He was trained as a doctor and barrister, working also as a journalist, judge, administrator, professor, philosopher and politician.
