Garrett on the Consistency of Hume's Philosophy

Hume Studies 24 (1):161-169 (1998)
Abstract
In _Cognition and Commitment in Hume's Philosophy, Don Garrett argues for the coherence of Hume's philosophy when it is viewed as work in cognitive psychology. Without denying this, I argue that there is more to Hume's standpoint than cognitive psychology. Specifically, Hume's standpoint shifts as the level of inquiry changes. A descriptive cognitive psychology is one standpoint that he occupies. However, he occupies other standpoints as well: the commonsense standpoint of the vulgar is one; the radical doubt of the skeptic is another. Such a radical perspectivism is central to Hume's writings
