Example text

A Selby-Bigge, 3rd edition, wed. revised by P. H. Nidditch. Oxford: Clarendon Press 1978, p. II. From now on cited in the text as E. B. Stroud, Hume. London: Routledge and Kegan Paul 1977, pp. 27-9. The "missing shade of blue" is a classic brain-teaser in Hume scholarship. For a recent discussion see D. Garrett, Cognition and Commitment inHume's Thought. Oxford: Oxford University Press 1997, ch. 2, "The copy principle", pp. 43-57. See J. J. Richetti, Philosophical Writing: Locke, Berkeley, Hume.

This reference to a wider role of causation as the connective tissue of our experience is tantalisingly short, and, I fmd, not entirely clear. It certainly seems to suggest that there is no way we can first consider and guarantee the existence of objects, then tackle the issue of how they may be connected to each other by causal links - or, as Hume himself puts it, duration is only conceivable on the basis of succession and coexistence: for when we think of an unchangeable object in time this is "only by a fiction of the imagination, by which the unchangeable object is suppos'd to participate of the changes of the co-existent objects" (T200-201).

Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press 1983, ch. 4, pp. 183-263, for a detailed and illuminating discussion of rhetoric and philosophy inHume's writing. See for example the discussions in J. L. Mackie, Problems from Locke. Oxford: Clarendon Press 1976, ch. 2, pp. W. Yolton, A Locke Dictionary. Oxford: Blackwelll993, entries "Idea", "Knowledge", and "Representation". See also the introductory section of Book 2, T275-6. To mention just one of them as an example, Hume is explicit in pointing out that his distinction and correlation of impressions and ideas involves a version of Locke's famous rejection of innate ideas: see T7 (and El7n).
