By David Hume

Mettre au jour les lois qui régissent le monde des passions, montrer que les passions engagent un rapport particulier au monde et souligner leur prégnance dans le domaine des activities humaines : telle est l ambition de Hume dans les deux oeuvres ici réunies. Réécriture du livre II du Traité, l. a. Dissertation sur les passions en rend plus saillantes les thèses originales.

À l. a. différence des moralistes qui dénoncent les vices des passions, des rationalistes qui entendent les subordonner aux idées claires et distinctes, et des naturalistes qui les font dériver des états du corps, Hume, s inspirant des méthodes de los angeles body newtonienne, les aborde pour l. a. première fois du aspect de vue d une technological know-how générale de l. a. nature humaine.

European scholars had always been busy letter-writers; Erasmus complained that he had to write more than ten a day, and his surviving correspondence bears witness to his labours. 35 But in general, it was perfectly possible to carry on an extensive and speedy correspondence.
