Editorial Reviews


'The previous objection not withstanding, this is an extremely important book.  Botros brings to light an ambiguity in Hume's text that is crucially important, with which anyone attempting to interpret or use Hume's arguments will need to contend.  She impressively and convincingly argues that there is a glaring blind spot among Humean scholars and meta-ethicists with respect to the parts of Hume's text that contradict the standard or 'moderate' reading of the argument.' – Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

'In this excellent book, Botros aims to show, first, that it is not at all clear what exactly the argument is supposed to be, and second, that whatever it is, it is unsuccessful ... A significant contribution.' – The Times Literary Supplement
