The Suasive Art of David Hume synopsis
David Hume had admitted in his days as a man of letters equal to Rousseau and Voltaire in France and a rival to Samuel Johnson, who had passed through his favor in the Victorian era, apparently did not seek the truth but indulged in generalization. Although Hume was once considered one of the greatest British philosophers, scientists now tend to focus on his thinking rather than on his writing.
To approximate our understanding of Hume, M. A Box examines in this book the interrelated development of Hume's literary aspirations, method theories, and the synthetic practice of his book in 1739 through inquiries.
In this context, Boxes explains Hume's long-term concern about presentation styles to reach an audience of his philosophical writings. Hume responded to the common failure of his masterpiece, "A Study of Human Nature," as Box suggests, by consciously exploring his own strategies in his later works in order to bring his readers to participate in the process of philosophy.
Combining the Sensitive Perception of Images The Restoration Period and the Eighteenth-Century Book Relationships between rhetoric and philosophy With sound readings of certain texts, Box shows how Hume's literary fears went way beyond style to involve personality, structure, and doctrine. While this book helps explain the long-standing ambiguities surrounding Hume, especially by pointing to the tension between his own character and his own voice, he also serves as an excellent introduction to his philosophy.
