    Projectivism and Error in Hume’s Ethics.Jonas Olson - 2011 - Hume Studies 37 (1):19-42.
    This essay argues that while Hume believes both that morality is grounded in our ordinary moral practices, sentiments, and beliefs, and that moral properties are real, he also holds that ordinary moral thinking involves systematically erroneous beliefs about moral properties. These claims, on their face, seem difficult to square with one another but this paper argues that on Hume’s view, they are reconcilable. The reconciliation is effected by making a distinction between Hume’s descriptive metaethics, that is, his account of vulgar (...)

    Précis of Projection and Realism in Hume’s Philosophy.P. J. E. Kail - 2010 - Hume Studies 36 (1):61-65.
    The title of my book, Projection and Realism in Hume's Philosophy, might mislead. One might protest, with some justification, that since neither "projection" nor "realism" is Hume's term and that both carry a severe threat of anachronism, discussing them in connection with Hume is misguided. Why might the readers of this journal wish to read such a work?Well, the first thing to note is that Hume's name has come to be associated with the metaphor of projection, understood as having some (...)

    A Humean Naturalistic Moral Theory.Augustine Yaw Frimpong-Mansoh - 2001 - Dissertation, University of Alberta (Canada)
    This thesis is a Humean dialogue with David Hume on his influential ideas that are of contemporary philosophical influence and importance, in particular his ideas on the relation between morality and science. It interprets Hume's view of science in terms of his theory of causation and examines the connection that his causal theory of scientific explanation bears with his moral theory. The connection that Hume's causal theory bears with his moral theory has not been sufficiently appreciated and given a serious (...)

    The Ethics of Performance in Shelley's "the Cenci".Scott Edward Boehnen - 2000 - Dissertation, Stanford University
    This thesis challenges a key assumption of criticism of Percy Bysshe Shelley since 1970; namely, that the poet's absorption of a philosophical skepticism implies an advocacy of a skeptical ethics. For Shelley the specifically epistemological skepticism developed within the first book of A Treatise of Human Nature by David Hume proves indispensable in clearing the mind of its "superstition" and in opening a "vacancy" in which a properly ethical faculty might be exercised. To assume that an epistemological skepticism serves as (...)

    Some Misconceptions About Hume's Moral Theory.Nicholas Capaldi - 1966 - Ethics 76 (3):208-211.
    There are eight major misconceptions about Hume's moral theory. First,many believe that there is no essential difference between the Treatise and the Enquiry. Second, some commentators believe that Hume has an extraordinary theory about the moral point of view. Third, many assume that Hume has an explicit theory of moral judgment. Fourth, several commentators have attributed to Hume a multiple theory about the relationship between moral judgment and moral sentiment. Fifth, some assert that Hume has a qualified- or ideal-spectator theory (...)

    Projectionism, Realism, and Hume's Moral Sense Theory.A. E. Pitson - 1989 - Hume Studies 15 (1):61-92.
    My concern is the character of hume's moral theory. I contrast two interpretations of hume, The projectionist and the realist, Which disagree about how seriously we should take hume's own description of his theory as one according to which moral distinctions are derived from a moral sense. I offer reasons for rejecting the projectionist reading, And I explore the parallels drawn by hume between the operation of the moral sense and that of the external senses. I conclude that if there (...)

    Projection and Realism in Hume's Philosophy. By P. J. E. Kail. [REVIEW]Donald C. Ainslie - 2009 - Metaphilosophy 40 (2):292-296.
    Peter Kail’s comprehensive, thoughtful, and challenging book focuses on Hume’s use of projectionFthe appeal to mental phenomena to explain manifest features of the worldFin his treatments of external objects, causation, and morality. Almost all interpreters of Hume acknowledge a role for projection, but Kail is the first to unpack the metaphor, and to show the different ways in which projection works in different domains.

    Gilding and Staining and the Significance of Our Moral Sentiments.Jacqueline Taylor - 2010 - Hume Studies 36 (1):89-95.
    In Part 3 of Projection and Realism, P. J. E. Kail offers an original and thought-provoking analysis of Hume's views on morality. Kail seeks to make sense of Hume's talk of projection and realism. Kail's stated aim is to help us understand Hume's own views, rather than some new Humean view. Part 3 is thus a contribution to the literature on Hume's meta-ethics. Kail's particular approach presents two challenges to the student of Hume's works. First, Kail gives us a set (...)

    Projection and Realism in Hume's Philosophy. [REVIEW]Anna Stoklosa - 2009 - Australasian Journal of Philosophy 87 (1):173 – 174.
    Hume talks of our ‘gilding and staining’ natural objects, and of the mind's propensity to ‘spread itself’ on the world. This has led commentators to use the metaphor of ‘projection’ in connection with his philosophy. This book spells out its meaning, the role it plays in Hume's work, and examines how, if at all, what sounds ‘projective’ in Hume can be reconciled with what sounds ‘realist’. In addition to offering some original readings of Hume's central ideas on God and the (...)

    Hume’s Projectivist Legacy for Environmental Ethics.Paul Haught - 2006 - Environmental Ethics 28 (1):77-96.
    Hume’s projectivist theory of value suggests that (environmental) values are either individually or culturally relative and that intrinsic value ascriptions are incoherent. Previous attempts to avert these implications have typically relied on modified Humean accounts that either universalize human sensitivity to the value of the more-than-human world or that adapt the concept of intrinsic value to suit a world in which all values are projected. While there are merits to these approaches, there is another alternative. Hume’s own moral theory promises (...)
