Progress of Sentiments by Annette C. Baier

Book Description

In this work, Annette Baier argues that Hume's "Treatise of Human Nature" is a carefully crafted literary and philosophical work which itself displays a philosophical progress of sentiments. She describes how, by turning philosophy toward human nature, Hume initiated a new philosophy, a broader discipline of reflection that can embrace Darwin and Foucault as well as Freud. Annette Baier has also written "Postures of the Mind: Essays on Mind and Morals" and "Moral Prejudices: Essays on Ethics".

Books By Author Annette C. Baier

Pursuits of Philosophy by Annette C. Baier Pursuits of Philosophy, Hardback (September 2011)

Marking the tercentenary of Hume's birth, Annette Baier has created an engaging guide to the philosophy of one of the greatest thinkers of Enlightenment Britain. Drawing on a lifetime of scholarship and incisive commentary, she finds in Hume's personal experiences new ways to illuminate his ideas about religion, human nature, and the social order.

Cautious Jealous Virtue by Annette C. Baier Cautious Jealous Virtue, Hardback (March 2010)

Offers an understanding of David Hume by examining what he meant by 'justice'. This title investigates the role of the natural virtue of equity (which Hume always understood to constrain justice) in Hume's thought, arguing that Hume's view of equity can serve to balance his account of the artificial virtue of justice.

Death and Character by Annette C. Baier Death and Character, Hardback (October 2008)

Considers David Hume's views on character, desirable character traits, his treatment of historical characters, and his own character as shown not just by his cheerful death - and what he chose to read shortly before it - but also by changes in his writings, especially his repudiation of the celebrated "A Treatise on Human Nature".

Moral Prejudices by Annette C. Baier Moral Prejudices, Paperback (April 1995)

An appeal for our fundamental moral notions to be governed not by rules and codes but by trust: a moral prejudice. In this exploration of the implications of trusting to trust rather than proscription, the author interweaves anecdote and autobiography with readings of Hume and Kant.
