David Hume : la philosophie et les savoirs

Abstract : In A Treatise on Human Nature, Hume identifies moral philosophy with the science of Human Nature and he maintains that such a science is capital, since the other provinces of knowledge are to be conquered from it. In his Essays Moral, Political and Literary, Hume explores a new link between philosophy and the other forms of knoweldge. He examines the reciprocal relations between the state of the arts and sciences and the political conditions of the society in which they rise or decline. The present paper shows how these two aspects of Hume’s philosophical discourse on the other sciences are interlocked.
