Abstract

This article reviews the influences of Scottish Enlightenment ideas about education, economics and social policy (among others) on Owen's agenda for social regeneration nationally and internationally. It exemplifies through case studies of some of the key Enlightenment figures with whom Owen associated as he was developing and refining his ideas in the early 1800s.
