    Between Commerce and Empire: David Hume, Colonial Slavery, and Commercial Incivility.Onur Ulas Ince - 2018 - History of Political Thought 39 (1):107-134.
    Eighteenth-century Enlightenment thought has recently been reclaimed as a robust, albeit short-lived, cosmopolitan critique of European imperialism. This essay complicates this interpretation through a study of David Hume’s reflections on commerce, empire, and slavery. I argue that while Hume condemned the colonial system of monopoly, war, and conquest, his strictures against empire did not extend to colonial slavery in the Atlantic. This was because colonial slavery represented a manifestly uncivil institution when judged by enlightened metropolitan sensibilities, yet also a decisively (...)

    A Cruel but Ancient Subjugation?: Understanding Hume’s Attack on Slavery.Margaret Watkins - 2013 - Hume Studies 39 (1):103-121.
    This essay argues that Hume’s criticism of slavery in “Of the Populousness of Ancient Nations,” despite its contribution to the British Enlightenment’s anti-slavery movement, is not truly abolitionist in character. Hume’s aim was not to put an end to contemporary slave practices or forestall their expansion. Nonetheless, the criticism of slavery proves significant for reasons that transcend the demographic questions of the essay. It supports an argument that Hume develops throughout the Essays and Political Discourses. The conclusion of this argument (...)

    Hume’s Revised Racism Revisited.Aaron Garrett - 2000 - Hume Studies 26 (1):171-177.
    John Immerwahr’s brief note “Hume’s Revised Racism” is doubtless one of the most intriguing recent discussions of Hume and racism. Immerwahr presents a thesis as to why Hume revised a footnote originally added to his essay “Of National Characters” in 1753. In this note I will examine and dispute Immerwahr’s thesis, which I believe can be shown to be seriously flawed. It is important to do so, as Immerwahr’s note has been quoted a number of times in books and articles (...)
