    This book highlights the importance of a rediscovery of David Hume's political thought, focusing on his ideas on the origin of government and political obedience and his vision of ideals such as liberty, property, political stability, and moderation – all topics that are a precious source of inspiration for the development of political conservatism. Hume’s Sceptical Materialism STEPHEN BUCKLE Abstract The paperarguesthat Hume’s philosophy is best described as sceptical materialism. It is argued that the conjunction is not self-contradictory as long as ‘scepticism’ is understood in its ancient sense, as the denial of knowledge of the essences of by: 9.

      The most prominent controversy in Hume scholarship over the last couple of decades has been the so-called ‘New Hume’ debate, concerning whether or not Hume is a realist about Causal powers (the capitalized term signifying a ‘thick’ connexion that goes beyond his famous two ‘definitions of cause’). 1 The long-familiar ‘Old Hume’ takes very seriously his Cited by: Hume writes that the point of putting forward the sceptical argument about reason is not to endorse it but rather to confirm the "truth" of his own hypotheses about custom and belief defended in Book 1, Part 3 of the Treatise (T ; SBN ). In fact, Hume seems to distance himself from the conclusion of the argument about reason.

David Hume. The sceptical conservative This book stresses the importance of returning to David Hume’s political thought, focusing on his ideas about the origin of government and political obedience, and his vision of the ideals of liberty, property, political stability, and moderation, all of which represent a precious source of inspiration.

Perhaps that is why the sceptical realist interpretation of Hume on causation offered in Norman Kemp Smith’s The Philosophy of David Hume () was for a long time mostly either quickly dispatched (see, for example, Robinson ) or else ignored completely. David Hume is famous as a skeptical philosopher but the nature of his skepticism is difficult to pin down.

Hume's True Scepticism provides the first sustained interpretation of Part 4 of Book 1 of Hume's Treatise, his deepest engagement with skeptical notes there that, while reason shows that we ought not to believe the verdicts of reason or the senses, we do so Format: Hardcover.

The Sceptical Realism of David Hume by John P. Wright,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.4/5(1). David Hume (/ h juː m /; born David Home; 7 May NS (26 April OS) – 25 August ) was a Scottish Enlightenment philosopher, historian, economist, and essayist, who is best known today for his highly influential system of philosophical empiricism, scepticism, and naturalism.

Beginning with A Treatise of Human Nature (–40), Hume strove to create a naturalistic Alma mater: University of Edinburgh.The Sceptical Realism of David Hume (Manchester: Manchester University Press, ); Livingston, Donald, Hume's Philosophy of Common Life (Chicago: Chicago University Press, ), and Philosophical Melancholy and Delirium (Chicago: Chicago University Press, ); Mounce, H.

O., Hume's Naturalism (London and New York: Routledge, Cited by: 9. The standard view of David Hume is that he endorses this view and rejects the idea of causal power. The central historical claim of this book is that this is wrong. There is no evidence that this ‘ontological’ regularity theory of causation ever occurred to Hume.

Nor does it follow from his empiricist theory of meaning. For these and other issues, see, inter alia, John P. Wright, The Sceptical Realism of David Hume (Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, ); E. J. The defended reading is thus a sceptical and Realist interpretation of Hume.

As such, it belongs to the class of what can be called no-single-Hume interpretations (Richard H. Popkin, Robert J. Fogelin, Donald L. M. Baxter), by contrast to single-Hume readings, which include Realist (naturalist, New Humean) and the traditional Reid-Green Cited by: 7.Hakkarainen Hume’s Scepticism and Realism As far as I can tell, no one has so far defended the mere sceptical interpretation of Hume's view of Realism.

However, it is one element in the no one Hume interpretations of three distinguished Hume scholars: Richard H. Popkin, Robert J. Fogelin, and Donald L.M. Baxter.
