Hume and Action Topics

 Some of the topics I will be covering in Hume and Action:

  • Wertfreiheit and the is/ought, or fact/value, divide
  • The irreduceability of logic, causality, and induction
  • Recent Hume studies trending toward interpreting Hume as a causal-realist
  • Hume's vital role, currently neglected in the liberal tradition, in the advent of scientific liberalism and modern economics.
  • The resonance between the ethics of Hume (misleadingly called hedonism) and that of Mises (misleadingly called utilitarianism).
