    Hume's Tacit Atheism.Charles Echelbarger - 1975 - Religious Studies 11 (1):19 - 35.
    A recent paper, ‘Hume's Immanent God’, )* by George Nathan, contains an insightful interpretation of Hume's Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion . Insight is no guarantee against error. I shall argue that Nathan's interpretation is mistaken, and then offer my own. Nathan observes that the general tendency in scholarship on D has been to focus on its sceptical side. He proposes to ‘bring out Hume's positive contribution’. Nathan's thesis, briefly, is that D best supports a modestly theistic interpretation according to which (...)

    Hume on Deduction.Charles Echelbarger - 1987 - Philosophy Research Archives 13:351-365.
    In this paper, the author discusses the feasibility of constructing a Humean model of the psychological realities of categorical propositions and syllogistic deduction by employing only Hume’s kinds of “ideas” and kinds of mental operations on ideas which Hume explicitly or implicitly postulated in his theory of discursive thinking.

    Hume on the Objects of Mathematics.Charles Echelbarger - 2013 - The European Legacy 18 (4):432-443.
    In this essay, I argue that Hume?s theory of Quantitative and Numerical Philosophical Relations can be interpreted in a way which allows mathematical knowledge to be about a body of objective and necessary truths, while preserving Hume?s nominalism and the basic principles of his theory of ideas. Attempts are made to clear up a number of obscure points about Hume?s claims concerning the abstract sciences of Arithmetic and Algebra by means of re-examining what he says and what he could comfortably (...)

    Wittgenstein’s Philosophy of Mind. [REVIEW]Charles Echelbarger - 1989 - Idealistic Studies 19 (2):182-182.
    The author of this book describes it as a “revised version of my thesis submitted … for the award of the PhD degree”. He says that its object is to “present a concise exposition of the later Wittgenstein’s philosophy of mind” as opposed to an “exhaustive account” of same. The book has a good index but no general bibliography. Owing to the difficulty of understanding Wittgenstein’s books, it is a good thing to have available short, clear expositions of his thought.

    Sheffler on Believing-True.Charles Echelbarger - 1983 - Philosophy Research Archives 9:495-509.
    The author examines Scheffler’s extensional alternative to the usual notion of belief and shows that it is necessarily inadequate to serve the purpose for which it was designed. This point is established by showing that Scheffler’s proposed substitute for psychologically intensional verbs like ‘believes’ can not deliver philosophers from the classical puzzles over propositional attitudes and can not be used in all cases even to provide materially equivalent extensional substitutes for ordinary belief-statements.

    Dewey and Russell: An Exchange.Charles Echelbarger - 1987 - Idealistic Studies 17 (3):279-280.
    The casual browser of books might at first take this selection from Dewey’s and Russell’s works to be a collection of letters exchanged between the two men. In fact, it consists of short pieces of writing by each philosopher. The principle of selection used by Mr. Meyer is to find parts of their works in which each philosopher criticized the other’s ideas on such topics as logic, democracy, and religion. The sources from which these selections are made are quite well (...)

    Reasons and Knowledge.Charles Echelbarger - 1985 - Idealistic Studies 15 (2):175-176.
    There is a traditional dispute over the question of the difference between having reasons for a belief or knowledge claim and being caused to believe something. Some recent work has attempted to bridge the gap between the two by arguing that there may be cases of having reasons for a belief where the reasons both justify and cause the belief. Marshall Swain’s Reasons and Knowledge is an example of the latter sort of work. Swain presents what he calls a “causal (...)
