Editorial Reviews

Review

"Herdt has written a well-documented text that is particularly helpful in providing insight into the historial and contemporary influences on Hume." W. F. Desmond, Choice

"...Religion and Faction in Hume's Moral Philosophy constitutes a substantial and absolutely first class contribution to Hume scholarship." Antony Flew, International Philosophical Quarterly

"Herdt's book is an illuminating analysis both of the themes that tie together Hume's philosophy and of the history of developments in modern moral philosophy." Ethics

"Beyond its value as a study of complex and interrelated themes in Hume's writings, Herdt's book has relevance to conteomporary events. Herdt's book is an excellent introduction to a thinker whose understanding of religion and its role in public life continues to merit careful study." The Journal of Religion

Book Description

This book explores Hume's concern with the destructiveness of religious factions and his efforts to develop, in his moral philosophy, a solution to factional conflict. Sympathy and the related capacity to enter into foreign points of view are crucial to the neutralization of religious zeal and the naturalization of ethics. Jennifer Herdt suggests that Hume's preoccupation with religious faction is the key which reveals the unity of his varied philosophical, aesthetic, political, and historical works.
