About this topic
Summary David Hume (1711-1766) was a Scottish thinker who made substantial contributions to the fields of epistemology, metaphysics, religion, mind, aesthetics, morals, politics, history and economics. He is traditionally classified as one of the three most important British empiricists along with John Locke (1632-1704) and George Berkeley (1685-1753).  
Key works

Hume’s major philosophical works include A Treatise of Human Nature (1739-1740), An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding (1748), An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals (1751) and Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion (1779). Oxford has recent scholarly editions of the Treatise (Norton & Norton 2007), the Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding (Beauchamp 2006), and the Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals (Beauchamp 2006). Editions of the Dialogues include Coleman 2007, Gaskin 1998/2009 and Kemp Smith 1935. Hume also wrote numerous essays on a variety of topics collected together in Essays, Moral, Political and Literary (Miller 1987) and a six-volume History of England (1754-1761) (Todd 1983).

    The paper is a warning against an unreserved use of reasoning, which is designed to show that a premise in an argument is missing. The reasoning is susceptible to a common equivocation. As a result, it can be systematically misleading, making us judge that certain premises are missing where they are not. It is argued that the equivocation in question lies at the bottom of Lewis Carroll's paradox, a version of Hume's problem as well as some arguments in philosophy of (...)

    ‘Empiricism’ has become for many a dirty word, and many writers have in mind the kind of neo-Humean Positivism that is the target of Wittgenstein’s Private Language Argument, Quine’s ‘Two Dogmas of Empiricism’, or Merleau-Ponty’s Phénoménologie de la perception. But examination of the Empiricist tradition before Hume uncovers views that do not involve anything like the much-abused “Myth of the Given” or twentieth-century sensedatum theory. This paper identifiesthe particular line of seventeenth-century thought that eventually gave rise to sense-datum theory, and (...)
