David Hume's Theory of the Passions
Jones, David J.
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this paper is a critical examination of David Hume's theory of the passions and emotions. Hume has tried to propose a purely mechanistic explanation of the passions. The theory of the passions proposed by Hume can be regarded as being in two parts. One part of the theory consists in the definition of what the passions are and how they arise, while the second part is Hume's explanation, mechanistic, of the passions. I will try to show both parts of his theory, and then consider whether or not these can be combined to form a whole, consistent theory. If they cannot, I will point out some of the difficulties encountered.
