    Hume argues against the seventeenth-century rationalists that reason is impotent to motivate action and to originate morality. Hume's arguments have standardly been considered the foundation for the Humean theory of motivation in contemporary philosophy. The Humean theory alleges that beliefs require independent desires to motivate action. Recently, however, new commentaries allege that Hume's argument concerning the inertness of reason has no bearing on whether beliefs can motivate. These commentaries maintain that for Hume, beliefs about future pleasurable and painful objects on (...)

    Themes of Action and Life in Four Philosophical Theories of Mind.William Spat - unknown
    The thesis makes use of the framework of action and life to consider four philosophical theories of mind, enunciated in the writings of Rene Descartes, David Hume, William James, and Thomas Nagel. Showing how each theory makes an appeal to action or life in order to attempt to provide a characterization of mind that is not too restrictive nor too lax is the concern of the extensive historical portion of the thesis. It is on the basis of the success or (...)

    Reason and Feeling in Hume's Action Theory and Moral Philosophy: Hume's Reasonable Passion. [REVIEW]Donald C. Ainslie - 1999 - Hume Studies 25 (1/2):266-269.
    Generally speaking, there are two ways to oppose another philosopher's view. You can argue against it—for example, by finding counterexamples, showing that it entails various unpalatable or absurd conclusions, or by raising objections to the arguments offered in its support. Or you can offer an alternative account of the issue in question. These two sorts of responses are, of course, complementary, and Hume uses both in his attempt to reveal the errors of traditional approaches to ethics. While Hume's negative arguments (...)

    Mind and Morality: An Examination of Hume’s Moral Psychology.John Bricke - 1996 - Oxford University Press.
    This book is a penetrating study of the theory of mind and morality that Hume developed in his Treatise of Human Nature and other writings. Hume rejects any conception of moral beliefs and moral truths. He understands morality in terms of distinctive desires and other sentiments that arise through the correction of sympathy. Hume's theory presents a powerful challenge to recent cognitivist theories of moral judgement, Bricke argues, and suggests significant limitations to recent conventionalist and contractarian accounts of morality's content.

    Hume on the Authority of Desire in Explaining Action.Sunny Yang - 2008 - Proceedings of the Xxii World Congress of Philosophy 16:263-273.
    The association of passion with desire has a long history, from Aristotle to contemporary philosophers. The Aristotelian conception of passion as involving desire has exerted a considerable influence on modern philosophers. I shall take this idea to be the thesis that emotion implies desire. In order to elaborate this thesis, in this paper, I shall focus on Hume’s theory of passion in Book 2 of Treatise. To this end, I first of all present an interpretation of Hume that relies on (...)
