David Hume on Reason, Passions and Morals

Hume Studies 10 (1):26-45 (1984)
Abstract
The paper argues against the tendency to interpret hume as saying that reason plays no role in the making of moral judgments. While reason alone does not move us to act--It is passions that move us to act--There can be no moral judgments without the work of reason. Reason is the track on which the human train is running, Passions the engine. Without passions, We go nowhere, But without reason, We go nowhere in particular
