Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Henry Home, Lord Kames was a Scottish philosopher of the 18th century. Born at Kames House, between Eccles and Birgham, Berwickshire, and educated at home by a private tutor, he became an advocate and was one of the leaders of the Scottish Enlightenment.
