Beginning with his A Treatise of Human Nature (1739), Hume strove to create a total naturalistic science of man that examined the psychological basis of human nature.Against philosophical rationalists, Hume held that passion rather than reason governs human behaviour.Hume's moral theory has been seen as a unique attempt to synthesise the modern sentimentalist moral tradition to which Hume belonged, with the virtue ethics tradition of ancient philosophy, with which Hume concurred in regarding traits of character, rather than acts or their consequences, as ultimately the proper objects of moral evaluation.Hume maintained an early commitment to naturalistic explanations of moral phenomena, and is usually taken to have first clearly expounded the is–ought problem, or the idea that a statement of fact alone can never give rise to a normative conclusion of what ought to be done.Joey, unable to say goodbye to Kate as she has to leave before the show finishes, channels his emotions at her loss into his character's farewell speech in the play.
The two sleep together at one point, but Kate passes it off as a one-time thing, leaving Joey shocked at the sudden change of tradition with him being the one who is dumped after a night that meant more to him than it did to the other person.He was born on 26 April 1711 (Old Style) in a tenement on the north side of the Lawnmarket in Edinburgh.Hume's father died when Hume was a child, just after his second birthday, and he was raised by his mother, who never remarried.Hume wrote that it started with a coldness, which he attributed to a "Laziness of Temper", that lasted about nine months. This was what persuaded Hume's physician to make his diagnosis.
Hume wrote that he "went under a Course of Bitters and Anti-Hysteric Pills", taken along with a pint of claret every day.He travelled via Bristol to La Flèche in Anjou, France.There he had frequent discourse with the Jesuits of the College of La Flèche.Hume argued against the existence of innate ideas, positing that all human knowledge is ultimately founded solely in experience; Hume thus held that genuine knowledge must either be directly traceable to objects perceived in experience, or result from abstract reasoning about relations between ideas which are derived from experience, calling the rest "nothing but sophistry and illusion", a dichotomy later given the name Hume's fork.
