Hume's Theory of Consciousness by Wayne Waxman
Book DescriptionThis book offers a comprehensive analysis and re-evaluation of Hume's Treatise of Human Nature. Kant viewed Hume as the sceptical destroyer of metaphysics. Yet for most of this century the consensus among interpreters is that for Hume scepticism was a means to a naturalistic, anti-sceptical end. The author seeks here to achieve a balance by showing how Hume's naturalism leads directly to a kind of scepticism even more radical than Kant imagined. In the process it offers the first systematic treatment of Humean associationalist psychology, including detailed exploration of his views on time-consciousness, memory, aspect-seeing, and the comparison with animal reason. Within this framework, Hume's views on language, belief, induction, causality, and personal identity emerge in a novel and revealing light.

Kant's Anatomy of the Intelligent Mind, Hardback (December 2013)
According to current philosophical lore, Kant rejected the notion that philosophy can progress by psychological means and endeavored to restrict it accordingly. This book reverses the frame from Kant the anti-psychological critic of psychological philosophy to Kant the preeminent psychological critic of non-psychological philosophy.
Kant and the Empiricists, Hardback (July 2005)» View all books by Wayne Waxman
Attempts to link the philosophers known as the British Empiricists - Locke, Berkeley, and Hume to the philosophy of Immanuel Kant. This work argues that Kant is actually the culmination of the British empiricist program and that he shares these thinkers' methodological assumptions and basic convictions about human thought and knowledge.
