9780674030909: Death and Character: Further Reflections on Hume
Críticas:

This collection of 13 essays provides readers with a rare opportunity to share the thoughts of someone who has been reading Hume and meditating on his thoughts and life for over 60 years...Baier maintains that Hume's early views of personal identity and causation lead to an inadequate conception of death, and that this is why Hume eventually distanced himself from the Treatise and advised readers to direct their attention toward his Enquiries. Baier, a first-rate Hume scholar, effortlessly weaves together personal reflection, discussion of Hume the man, and scholarly argument, with the result that this book is engaging and highly readable. It deserves higher praise than is possible in this short review. -- J. H. Spence Choice 20090601

Reseña del editor:

Reviewing Annette Baier's 1995 work "Moral Prejudices" in the "London Review of Books", Richard Rorty predicted that her work would be read hundreds of years hence; Baier's subsequent work has borne out such expectations, and this new book further extends her reach. Here she goes beyond her earlier work on David Hume to reflect on a topic that links his philosophy to questions of immediate relevance - in particular, questions about what character is and how it shapes our lives.Ranging widely in Hume's works, Baier considers his views on character, desirable character traits, his treatment of historical characters, and his own character as shown not just by his cheerful death - and what he chose to read shortly before it - but also by changes in his writings, especially his repudiation of the celebrated "A Treatise on Human Nature". She offers new insight into the Treatise and its relation to the works in which Hume "cast anew" the material in its three books. Her reading radically revises the received interpretation of Hume's epistemology and, in particular, philosophy of mind.
