Editorial Reviews

Review

"In David Hume and the Problem of Other Minds, Anik Waldow has used the problem of the existence of other minds as a lens through which to view Hume's attitude to sceptical arguments and what they show. Since Hume's treatment of other minds is located in his account of the passions and sentiments, rather than in his account of scepticism as such, we are able to build up a more comprehensive picture of just what role sceptical arguments play in our understanding of the world in Hume's philosophy. Our grasp of Hume's project is thereby enhanced considerably." — Professor Stephen Gaukroger, University of Sydney, Australia

"Anik Waldow makes illuminating connections between Hume's views on why we should trust our causal inferences and why we should trust our interpretations of what other persons are thinking and feeling. She spells out Hume's answer to a philosophical problem that only later thinkers formulated and addressed." — Annette Baier
