 Classics of Moral Philosophy: Hume’s A Treatise of Human Nature

Autumn Term 2017, Tuesdays, 19:00 – 21:00, ten weeks starting 3rd October

Course Tutor: Sam Fremantle

This course will undertake a guided reading of those parts of Hume’s A Treatise of Human Nature that put forward his ethical theory, covering roughly a third or a half of the book. Time permitting, we shall go on to look at differing perspectives on Hume’s ethics from the enlightenment philosopher, Immanuel Kant and contemporary philosophers such as Bernard Williams. Exactly which commentators and critics we look at can depend on the preferences of the group. This course assumes no prior knowledge of Hume’s works and is perfect for beginners, though those with prior knowledge should find it useful too.
