The Foundation of Hume's Philosophy
First published in 1999, this volume endeavours to determine the coherence of David Hume’s philosophical system. That is, to show that Hume’ philosophy is founded upon nothing but his doctrine of belief, from which the entirety of Hume’s philosophy may ultimately be derived. Paul A. Mwaipaya demonstrates the coherence of Hume’s thoughts in order to show where it has been misunderstood and to dissolve confusing interpretations of Hume’s philosophy. This ultimate commonality is derived through examinations of Hume’s general theory of perception, Hume’s theory of knowledge and probability and Hume’s theory of passions and morality.
