Note to readers: Originally I thought there was a stronger link between Maclaurin and Hume, however I now think it clear that Hume is not taking his mechanics out of Maclaurin’s Account. Although I still have found Maclaurin useful in interpreting Hume, I suspect this draft suffers somewhat from ambivalence. There are still similarities, and possible avenues of influence, arguing that Hume was not ignorant of the new mechanics, but it also becomes clear that he did not understand it: although he adopts the Newtonian measure of force, he misapplies it.
