Hume and the Enlightenment

Craig Taylor (Editor), Stephen Buckle (Editor)

    Research output: Book/ReportAnthology

    Abstract

    While Hume remains one of the most central figures in modern philosophy his place within Enlightenment thinking is much less clearly defined. Although historically an Enlightenment figure, this identity is often missed due to misunderstandings of both his philosophy and of the movement itself. Taking recent work on Hume as a starting point, this volume of original essays aims to re-examine and clarify Hume's influence on the thought and values of the Enlightenment.
