176 Hume Moural TuWTh 1-3:30 136 Barrows

The focus of the course is on David Hume’s (1711-1776) epistemology, metaphysics, and metaphilosophy (arguably the core of his philosophical project). We shall examine the relation between the early and the mature version of his views, studying closely A Treatise of Human Nature, book I (1739), An Enquiry concerning Human Understanding (1748) and the transitional texts.
