Rogers, Barry Stroud, Ian Tipton, Margaret D. Wilson & Kenneth Winkler - 1998 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    This collection of essays on themes in the work of John Locke , George Berkeley , and David Hume , provides a deepened understanding of major issues raised in the Empiricist tradition.

    Hume on the Idea of Existence.Phillip D. Cummins - 1991 - Hume Studies 17 (1):61-82.
    In the Treatise Hume claims one's idea of existence is not distinct from the idea of what one conceives to be existent. From clues in his extremely terse defence of his claim I construct an argument that is logically valid and founded on premises he is likely to have considered both cogent and consistent with his main philosophical principles. I also examine briefly and incompletely what his position on existence and the idea of existence does and does not include.

    George Berkeley’s Manuscript Introduction. [REVIEW]Phillip Cummins - 1992 - Idealistic Studies 22 (3):235-236.
    The first question to ask of this diplomatic edition is why bother? Why attempt to provide an exact print reproduction of a handwritten antecedent of the Introduction to Berkeley’s A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge? And why divide the book into Editor’s Introduction, Editor’s Commentary, Text, and Critical Apparatus? The answer makes one appreciate Belfrage’s labors. T. E. Jessop, the editor of the standard edition of MI, as I shall call the material from a notebook in the library (...)

    Hume's Diffident Skepticism.Phillip D. Cummins - 1999 - Hume Studies 25 (1/2):43-65.
    One of the chief problems facing interpreters of Hume's philosophy is what I shall call the integration problem. It is a global problem inasmuch as it casts a shadow on every component of his philosophy, but does not directly affect how we interpret their details. The integration problem arises at the end of Book I of A Treatise of Human Nature, where Hume seemed to acknowledge that his account of human understanding, his logic, leads directly to total skepticism regarding both (...)

    A Puzzling Passage in “Why Utility Pleases”.Phillip D. Cummins - 2000 - Hume Studies 26 (1):179-181.
    It could hardly be controversial that in “Why utility pleases,” Section V of his Enquiry concerning the Principles of Morals, Hume purports to tell his readers why utility pleases. It is not controversial that in that section he rejected the deduction of morals from self-love, that is, the thesis that utility pleases because actions and policies possessing it inevitably are in the actual or perceived self-interest of the person who approves of them. This is not to deny there are interpretive (...)

    Minds, Ideas and Objects: Essays on the Theory of Representation in Modern Philosophy.Michael Ayers, Phillip D. Cummins & Gunter Zoller - 1997 - Philosophical Review 106 (2):288.
    Minds, Ideas and Objects is a collection of conference papers on the topic of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century theories of ideas or “sensory experience, thought, knowledge and their objects.” At least half the twenty-three papers are by well-known historians of philosophy who seldom disappoint, and there is some equally thought-provoking work among the rest. Some papers say little that is surprising, and some, including good ones, fail to convince, but few are weak. It is perhaps to be expected that coverage of (...)

    Essays on Berkeley: A Tercentennial Celebration. [REVIEW]Phillip Cummins - 1989 - Idealistic Studies 19 (2):175-176.
    Both John Foster and Howard Robinson hold that idealism, construed as a position about perception and the material world, is far more defensible than most philosophers think. The former, indeed, wrote The Case for Idealism. This may be enough to explain their project to celebrate Berkeley’s tercentenary, since he surely is the decisive figure in the development of the kind of idealism they take seriously. In their “Introduction,” the editors attempt to link together the twelve essays which follow, but do (...)
