The Senses, Reason and the Imagination

(p.26) 2 The Senses, Reason and the Imagination
Projection and Realism in Hume's Philosophy

P. J. E. Kail (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter compares three key aspects of Hume's account of mind, sense reason, and imagination. Explanatory projection rests with a contrast with detective sources, and it is argued that the senses constitute a detective source of content and reason of belief. This is a discussion of Hume's alleged scepticism about probable reason and the historical background to Hume's account of the imagination.
