Peter Kahn asked Alexander McCall Smith:

As a former graduate student in philosophy, I enjoy reading the details you share about Isabel's professional activities and philosophical education. Which philosophers, works, and theories would you say have been the greatest influences on Isabel's thinking? Does her philosophical viewpoint largely mirror your own, or does her thinking differ from yours?

Alexander McCall Smith Oddly enough, Isabel and I agree on many matters! I think that she has been influenced by Hume and by various contemporary philosophers (Scruton, Kekes and others) AMcS
