Description

Auteur

Annette C. Baier is Distinguished Service Professor of Philosophy Emerita at the University of Pittsburgh.



Texte du rabat

This text argues that Hume's "Treatise of Human Nature" is a work which itself shows a philosophical progress of sentiments, and describes how, by turning philosophy toward human nature, Hume began a new philosophy, a wider discipline of reflection embracing Darwin and Foucault as well as Freud.



Résumé
Baier aims to make sense of Hume's Treatise as a whole. Hume's family motto was "True to the End." Baier argues that it is not until the end of the Treatise that we get his full story about "truth and falsehood, reason and folly." By the end, we can see the cause to which Hume has been true throughout the work.
