Francis Hutcheson (; 8 August 1694 – 8 August 1746) was an Irish philosopher born in Ulster to a family of Scottish Presbyterians who became known as one of the founding fathers of the Scottish Enlightenment. He is remembered for his book "A System of Moral Philosophy". Hutcheson took ideas from Cicero, Cumberland and John Locke, and he was an important influence on the works of several significant Enlightenment thinkers, including David Hume and Adam Smith.
