9780199266357: Themes in Hume: The Self, the Will, Religion

Terence Penelhum has since the 1950s been a leading contributor to studies of the thought of David Hume; he now presents a selection of the best of his essays on Hume, most of them quite recent, three of them not published elsewhere. The central themes of the book are selfhood, the will, and religious belief. Penelhum's view of Hume will be fascinating for all who work on these themes, whether from an eighteenth-century or a twentieth-century perspective.

Review:


"Penelhum is an influential, creative, and careful interpreter of Hume...Penelhum has a remarkable knack for appreciating, and indeed sympathizing with, Hume's naturalistic and secularizing aims and defending the details of some of Hume's more tangled arguements."--thics

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Terence Penelhum presents a selection of the best of his essays on Hume, most of them quite recent, and three of them not published elsewhere. The central themes of the book are selfhood, the will, and religious belief. Penelhum argues that Hume s sceptical conclusions on personal identity are based on conceptual confusions, but that the common charge of circularity made against him is unfounded. He examines the role Hume gives the idea of the self in his analysis of the passions, the dissonance between the account of the self in the first book of the Treatise of Human Nature and that found in the second, and the reasons for Hume s own dissatisfaction with his views on this theme. The essays on the will examine Hume s famous attacks on rationalist understandings of human motives, and try to expose the deficiencies in his compatibilist interpretation of freedom. The discussion of Hume s views on religion relates them to his scepticism and to his doctrine of natural belief. Penelhum maintains that Hume s ultimate views on religion are to be found in the harshly negative judgements of the first Enquiry, which he did not ever see reason to modify. Penelhum s essays will be fascinating for all who work on these themes, whether from an eighteenth-century or a twentieth-century perspective. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780199266357
