  1. Hume on Space, Geometry, and Diagrammatic Reasoning.De Pierris Graciela - 2012 - Synthese 186 (1):169-189.
    Hume’s discussion of space, time, and mathematics at T 1.2 appeared to many earlier commentators as one of the weakest parts of his philosophy. From the point of view of pure mathematics, for example, Hume’s assumptions about the infinite may appear as crude misunderstandings of the continuum and infinite divisibility. I shall argue, on the contrary, that Hume’s views on this topic are deeply connected with his radically empiricist reliance on phenomenologically given sensory images. He insightfully shows that, working within (...)

  2. Ideas, Evidence, and Method: Hume's Skepticism and Naturalism Concerning Knowledge and Causation.Graciela De Pierris - 2015 - Oxford University Press UK.
    Graciela De Pierris presents a novel interpretation of the relationship between skepticism and naturalism in Hume's epistemology, and a new appraisal of Hume's place within early modern thought. Contrary to dominant readings, she argues that Hume does offer skeptical arguments concerning causation and induction in Book I, Part III of the Treatise, and presents a detailed reading of the skeptical argument she finds there and how this argument initiates a train of skeptical reasoning that begins in Part III and culminates (...)

  3. Hume and Locke on Scientific Methodology: The Newtonian Legacy.Graciela De Pierris - 2006 - Hume Studies 32 (2):277-329.
    Hume follows Newton in replacing the mechanical philosophy’s demonstrative ideal of science by the Principia’s ideal of inductive proof ; in this respect, Hume differs sharply from Locke. Hume is also guided by Newton’s own criticisms of the mechanical philosophers’ hypotheses. The first stage of Hume’s skeptical argument concerning causation targets central tenets of the mechanical philosophers’ conception of causation, all of which rely on the a priori postulation of a hidden configuration of primary qualities. The skeptical argument concerning the (...)

  5. Causation as a Philosophical Relation in Hume.Graciela De Pierris - 2002 - Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 64 (3):499-545.
    By giving the proper emphasis to both radical skepticism and naturalism as two independent standpoints in Hume, I wish to propose a more satisfactory account of some of the more puzzling Humean claims on causation. I place these claims alternatively in either the philosophical standpoint of the radical skeptic or in the standpoint of everyday and scientific beliefs. I characterize Hume’s radical skeptical standpoint in relation to Hume’s perceptual model of the traditional theory of ideas, and I argue that Hume‘s (...)

    Hume and Descartes on Skepticism with Regard to Demonstrative Reasoning.Graciela De Pierris - 2005 - Análisis Filosófico 25 (2):101-119.
    Commentaries on Hume's Treatise 1.4.1, "Of scepticism with regard to reason," have focused on the argument that an initial lack of certainty concerning the conclusion of an inference gradually diminishes to zero. In my view, Hume offers this famous argument only after, and as corollary to, a far more interesting skeptical argument concerning demonstrative reasoning, which occurs at the very beginning of Treatise 1.4.1. I focus on this neglected argument, point to its Cartesian roots, and draw a distinction between ordinary (...)

  18. A Fundamental Ambiguity In The Cartesian Theory Of Ideas.Graciela De Pierris - 2002 - Manuscrito 25 (2):105-146.
    Traditionally the modern theory of ideas has been discussed primarily in reference to its alleged introduction of a veil of mental items between the mind and the world, which leads, through the empiricists, to radical skepticism about the existence of an external world. Here I propose to emphasize an entirely different aspect of the Cartesian theory of ideas which, in my view, is more fundamental in opening the empiricist path that leads to Hume’s radical skepticism. I argue that what I (...)

  20. A Priori Knowledge.Graciela De Pierris - 1983 - Dissertation, University of California, Berkeley
    In the First Chapter, I give an interpretation of Kant's characterization of a priori knowledge which sharply distinguishes Kant's from an innatist conception; in this way, I distinguish Kant's transcendental explanation of a prioricity from both innatist and naturalistic explanations. ;The arguments given by Kant to support his claim that we are in fact in possession of a priori knowledge rely on his criterion of a prioricity: if a truth is necessary then it must be justified a priori. I criticize (...)

  22. Naturalismo y la autonomía del pensamiento filosófico: la epistemología naturalista de Quine en relación con la epistemología tradicional.Graciela De Pierris - 1999 - Análisis Filosófico 19 (1):5-30.
    “Epistemology naturalized” has been extremely influential among contemporary analytical epistemologists. Current discussions about Quine´s thesis do not pay attention to a basic point: his main argument is a historical one. Quine tries to show that a naturalized epistemology is the best way out vis-à-vis the failures of traditional epistemology. In this paper, I argue that Quine´s argument is based on a fictitions historical account. If that is the case, his reasons for a naturalized epistemology are non-sufficient.
