    Far as I understand it there are limits to altruism Just as there limits to what two people can have in common and what two people can speak of in public and what two people can speak of while operating motor vehiclesI think Hume and I would have enjoyed shooting heroin together


  2. Brent McCulley Brent McCulley says:

    All the philosophy therefore in the world and all the religion which is nothing but a species of philosophy will never be able to carry us beyond the usual course of experience or give us measures of conduct and behavior different from those which are furnished by reflections on common life No new fact can ever be inferred from the religious hypotheses no event forseen or foretold no reward or punishment expected or dreaded beyond what is already known by practice and observation 101I have thoroughly enjoyed Hume—probably than I should have but there is something that resonates strongly when viewing his philosophy as adjunct to Nietzsche and Kierkegaard especially Hume's skepticism of cause and effect and denial of free will Nietzsche and his understanding of philosophy and limitations therewith and knowing God not through reason but solely divine revelation KierkegaardDivinity or Theology as it prove the existence of a Deity and the immortality of souls is composed partly of reasonings concerning particular partly concerning general facts It has a foundation in reason so far as it is supported by experience But its best and most solid foundation is faith in divine revelation 114Hume's postulation of anything not a priori which he reduces to mostly mathematics and geometry as being able to be conceived since it doesn't pose a logical contradiction was uite stunning and the good foundations for a temperate and moderate skepticism whereby we limit the capacities of human reason and understand that it truly is our experience and inference of casual effects and of the future emulating the past that we are even able to live rational livesAn excellent read as I look forward to reading his longer treatise in the near future

    I think this is the book I realized that I’m probably interested in social science rather than pure philosophy especially ontology It simply can’t convince me when the author has some mistakessome non conforming examples in his logic and he’s still trying to over generalize things in this world to draw a conclusion

    Rly uite a smart guy


  5. Sam Snideman Sam Snideman says:

    I don't typically give up on books especially philosophic texts But Hume is uite onerous to read or at least this particular set of works is onerous to read Certainly Hume has contributed much to philosophic thought and everyone should be familiar with his ideas But as with many Enlightenment era writers the prose often leaves something to be desired The point of philosophy is not always to demonstrate good writing but absent an interesting presentation it is often difficult to want to push through to find the good ideas and philosophic truths For me that point came around page 70 of Hume's An Enuiry Concerning Human Understanding; I did however look at his Abstract and Letter as well


  6. Enoch Kuo Enoch Kuo says:

    A skeptic in the true sense of the word dedicated to the task of demolishing the arrogant pretensions of the many rationalist systems of his time Here Hume points out various holes in various central concepts of the developing modern philosophy the notion of cause and effect of liberty and necessity noting the central role that non rational factors like custom play in our lives


  7. Kathleen O& Kathleen O& says:

    Of the philosophers I have had to read so far for my 896 exam Hume is my favorite He does what the best analytic philosophers do which is to draw very radical conclusions in a very orthodox way After reading this book I am interested in learning in particular about Hume's implications for contemporary philosophy of science
