It is style of reasoning and method of enquiry which de fine a school of thought, and it is at this level that the Scottish t radition can most effectively be revived to address current issues. T he paper highlights the role of the education system in fostering par ticular modes of thought. Copyright 1987 by Scottish Economic Society.
