This chapter reviews the book Academic Patronage in the Scottish Enlightenment: Glasgow, Edinburgh and St Andrews Universities (2008), by Roger L. Emerson. Emerson offers an account of the professoriate and the patronage system which brought Glasgow, Edinburgh, and St Andrews universities their academic positions and allowed those who managed the system to exert enormous influence over Scotland's intellectual and cultural life. In particular, he cites Archibald Campbell, Earl of Ilay and 3rd Duke of Argyll, as the most influential patron of the Scottish Enlightenment.
