Conference : Hume's legacy‏

Among classical philosophers since Descartes, the influence of the thought of David Hume (1711-1776) on contemporary analytic philosophy is unmatched. In the fields of causation, personal identity, epistemology, philosophy of mind, philosophy of religion and moral theory, Hume’s ideas have shaped philosophical debate and conditioned the perspectives not only of his admirers but of his adversaries. In the 20th century alone, Hume’s empiricism and scepticism were recognized as formative and even dominant influences by (among many others) Bertrand Russell, the Vienna Circle, A.J. Ayer, Richard Hare, and J.L. Mackie. In this tricentennial year of his birth, the Philosophy Faculty of the Institut Catholique de Paris is bringing together Hume specialists from universities in both France and the U.K. for a conference which will attempt to evaluate the continuing relevance and importance of Hume’s thought in these key areas of contemporary philosophy.
