Around 1740 Smith began reading the work of some of the philosophical sceptics, including that of Hume , who later became a close friend. (Details)
In 1746, he went back to Kirkcaldy and Henry Home, later Lord Kames, sponsored a course of public lectures that Smith delivered in Edinburgh. (Details)
Essentially, the intention of the lectures was to direct and instruct educated Scots, who might feel that their standard of English was poor in matters of language and good taste. (Details)
