    Possessiveness and Embodiment: What Thoreau Didn’T Know.Peter Dalton - 1998 - International Journal of Applied Philosophy 12 (2):187-201.
    In “Economy,” Henry Thoreau argues against the common view that it is highly worthwhile for a human being to work hard in order to obtain material possessions. Thoreau’s objections are forceful, wide-ranging, and extraordinarily well written. Yet his readers, like almost everyone else, continue to desire, pursue, or acquire more and more material things as well as more and more money, the primary means to such things. Thoreau knew that this was true of the people of his own time, but (...)

    Humean Causality: Inference or Relation?Peter Dalton - 2010 - Journal of Philosophical Research 35:1-24.
    At the close of his account of causality in the Treatise, Hume acknowledges that he had to adopt the “seemingly preposterous method” of examining the causal inference prior to analyzing the causal relation since the relation “depends so much on the inference” . This dependence emerges in his two definitions of ‘cause’ which, he concedes, seem “extraneous” to the causal relation. In this paper, I try to do what Hume did not do but could have done: fully describe the causal (...)

    Hume’s Third Cause.Peter Dalton - 2003 - Journal of Philosophical Research 28:169-190.
    It is widely believed that Hume recognizes only two types of causality-one equivalent to a constant conjunction between two "objects," the other involving somesort of necessary connection between them. I will refer to these types, respectively, as "conjunction" and "necessity." I believe that Hume relies on a third type of causality-a process by which a constant conjunction of perceptions causes someone to acquire a mental habit. To remain close to Hume's terminology, I will refer to the process as "repetition." The (...)

    Kantian Freedom and the Possibility of the Critical Philosophy.Peter C. Dalton - 1983 - Idealistic Studies 13 (2):85-109.
    The curious thing about some of the standard objections to Kantian freedom is that Kant was acutely aware of them, so much so that some of their most forceful formulations can be lifted directly from his writings. Consider the three most famous objections to his theory.
