A Progress of Sentiments: Reflections on Hume's Treatise

Annette Baier's target is to make feel of David Hume's Treatise as an entire. Hume's kinfolk motto, which appears to be like on his bookplate, used to be "True to the tip.

Example text

This morning we are going to consider three essential things: what is living? - the life that we lead every day; what is compassion, love? and the third, what is death?

How can thought not interfere? You see the problem? It is not `how to end thought'. When you have put the question very clearly, you will see it for yourself. Thought, which is the response of the past, interferes, divides as the outer and the inner and destroys unity. ' This is a totally wrong question.

See what is happening to a mind that is not afraid, that is not seeking pleasure or pursuing entertainment, a mind that has no dependence on authority, but is really enquiring; to a mind that does not depend on anything there is no fear and therefore it can enquire. Such a mind has already become extraordinarily sharp, alive, intense, earnest.
