16th - 17th July 2015: Hume and Naturalism workshop

Hume’s work has been regarded by many as a strong influence on the formation of philosophical naturalism, and it is clear that naturalism informs Hume’s work on epistemology, philosophy of mind and ethics, amongst other topics. More generally some influential interpretations regard Hume’s naturalism as helping to lay the foundations for a ‘disenchanted’ conception of the world. However, recent work on the character of philosophical naturalism, for example work seeking to present and defend non-reductive, less scientistic forms of naturalism, suggest different ways to interpret Hume’s work. There may be reasons to maintain that Hume’s naturalism represents the kind of view opposed by these alternative forms. But, arguably, there are a number of ways that our understanding of Hume can be enhanced by adopting different conceptions of what naturalism amounts to. This workshop aims to identify and explore the range of interpretive possibilities in this context.
