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".
