Description

It is widely believed that Hume often wrote carelessly and contradicted himself, and that no unified, sound philosophy emerges from his writings. Don Garrett demonstrates that such criticisms of Hume are without basis. Offering fresh and trenchant solutions to longstanding problems in Hume studies, Garrett's penetrating analysis also makes clear the continuing relevance of Hume's philosophy.show more

Review quote

Garrett seeks mainly to show that Hume's position is internally consistent and to build a portrait of Hume as essentially a cognitive psychologist. * The Review of Metaphysics * Garrett's Cognition and Commitment is a first-rate interpretive study, one that unties a great many interpretive knots. * Ethics * I know of no other writer on Hume who has been this assiduous in finding interpretive difficulties in the text and then taking them head on....Beautifully written. * Robert J. Fogelin, Dartmouth College * A significant contribution to Hume studies. * Jonathan Bennett, Syracuse University *show more
