  1. David Hume (1739/2000). A Treatise of Human Nature. Oxford University Press.score: 318.0
    A Treatise of Human Nature (1739-40), David Hume's comprehensive attempt to base philosophy on a new, observationally grounded study of human nature, is one of the most important texts in Western philosophy. It is also the focal point of current attempts to understand 18th-century philosophy. -/- The Treatise first explains how we form such concepts as cause and effect, external existence, and personal identity, and to form compelling but unconfirmable beliefs in the entities represented by these concepts. It then offers (...)

  2. James A. Harris (2009). A Compleat Chain of Reasoning: Hume's Project in a Treatise of Human Nature, Books One and Two. Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society 109 (1pt2):129-148.score: 318.0
    In this paper I consider the context and significance of the first instalment of Hume's A Treatise of Human Nature , Books One and Two, on the understanding and on the passions, published in 1739 without Book Three. I argue that Books One and Two taken together should be read as addressing the question of the relation between reason and passion, and place Hume's discussion in the context of a large early modern philosophical literature on the topic. Hume's goal is (...)

    This article shows the unity of hume's "a treatise" as a problem; green and smith; contemplation and action; the roles of the author; the ambiguities of nature and fiction; scarcity and vanity. "a treatise" as an experiment in autonomy unmixed with heteronomy (obscurity and restraint); vindication of the ordinary through flight to the extraordinary; mention and use, Retorsion; arguments from silence and violence against hyperbolic evidence and unruly desire; is discourse compatible with dissolution of its author into free-Floating impressions or (...)

  10. Vadim V. Vasilyev (2013). Hume's Methodology and the Science of Human Nature. History of Philosophy Yearbook 2012:62-115.score: 267.6
    In this paper I try to explain a strange omission in Hume’s methodological descriptions in his first Enquiry. In the course of this explanation I reveal a kind of rationalistic tendency of the latter work. It seems to contrast with “experimental method” of his early Treatise of Human Nature, but, as I show that there is no discrepancy between the actual methods of both works, I make an attempt to explain the change in Hume’s characterization of his own methods. This (...)

    A Treatise of Human Nature opens with ambitious hopes for the science of man, but Hume eventually launches into a series of skeptical arguments that culminates in a report of radical skeptical despair. This essay is a preliminary exploration of how to interpret this surprising development. I first distinguish two kinds of surprise twist: those that are incompatible with some preceding portion of the work, and those that are not. This suggests two corresponding pictures of Hume. On one picture, he (...)

The strongest sensations and most violent emotions, instead of distracting us from this view ·of our self·, only focus it all the more intensely, making us think about how these sensations and emotions affect our self by bringing (...)
