(p.147) 7 Gilding: Projection, Value and Secondary Qualities
Projection and Realism in Hume's Philosophy

P. J. E. Kail (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines Hume's comparison of values with secondary qualities. It is shown that Hume's account of secondary qualities and the comparison should be viewed against a French understanding of secondary qualities. It is not, as it is commonly assumed, a mistaken view of Locke. In the light of this, the point of the comparison is shown to lie in the attempt to understand the pre-theoretical view of values as properties thoroughly independent of human responses.

Keywords:   gilding, staining, value, Locke
