Each term I try to offer a single “Readings and research” course so I don’t end up scattering myself over too many readings. I was going to offer one next term in philosophy of law, but I haven’t had any students express strong interest in that, whereas I have had some students express some other interests, so I’ve decided to make the subject David Hume’s philosophy. It’s only open to students who are near to finishing (or have finished) the classes required for the Philosophy major. If you think you’re interested, send me a note, or catch me for a conversation.

Just a thought:
What if we modified this and turned it into a course on causation? We could put Hume in conversation with other teleological accounts. We could try to sort out the bad teleological views he was rejecting and whether he would also reject the immanent teleology I try to defend.
I certainly wouldn’t mind some time focusing on causation, but I do want to get to the other parts of Hume as well.
