Editorial Reviews


The position [Cohon] defends and the arguments she deploys should be of interest to anyone interested in Hume's ethics and sentimentalist views generally. It is an excellent addition to the recent flurry of first-rate Hume scholarship. Guy Fletcher, The Philosophical Quarterly, Vol. 60, No. 241 (Oct 2010) One has to admire the spirit, the inventiveness, the concern for the text, and the engagement with other views that Cohon displays. Annette C. Baier, Mind 119 d the very best book on Hume's ethics Eric Schliesser, New APPS Blog Rachel Cohon provides an excellent, detailed, scholarly and thorough analysis of Hume's moral theory... Her book is a 'must read' for anyone working in Hume's ethics and moral theory generally. Christine Swanton, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews [a] very fine book ... There is a great deal to be said about Cohon's interpretation. I predict that her book will be a staple of discussion of Hume's ethics for years to come ... Hume's Morality presents a powerful case for a new and important reading of Hume on the artificial virtues, and challenging its conclusions will be very hard work. James A. Harris, British Journal for the History of Philosophy
