"an exciting and useful volume" Roger L. Emerson, University of Western Ontario (Emeritus), in Metascience, 2017, DOI 10.1007/s11016-017-0201-2 "The merits of Demeter's book are nevertheless substantial. I recommend David Hume and the Culture of Scottish Newtonianism for anyone who is interested in the integrated history of the natural sciences and humanities/social sciences, the work of Hume and the history of philosophy as contextualized in its social environment." Matias Slavov, University of Jyvaskyla, in the Journal of Early Modern Studies, 2017, pp 207-212 "a valuable contribution to our understanding of the intellectual context of Hume's philosophy, that should make a decisive change to what we mean when we describe Hume as a 'Newton of the mind'." James A. Harris, University of St. Andrews, in The Philosophical Quarterly, DOI 10.1093/pq/pqx041

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. David Hume has a canonical place in the context of moral philosophy, but his insights are less frequently discussed in relation to natural philosophy. David Hume and the Culture of Scottish Newtonianism offers a discussion of Hume s methodological and ideological commitments in matters of knowledge as reflected in his language and outlook. Tamas Demeter argues that several aspects of Hume s moral philosophy reflect post-Newtonian tendencies in the aftermath of the Opticks, and show affinities with Newton-inspired Scottish physiology and chemistry. Consequently, when Hume describes his project as an anatomy of the mind he uses a metaphor that expresses his commitment to study human cognitive and affective functioning on analogy with active and organic nature, and not with the Principia s world of inert matter.
