Abstract

SMITH, Plínio Junqueira. A dívida de Hume com Pascal. Kriterion [online]. 2011, vol.52, n.124, pp. 365-384. ISSN 0100-512X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-512X2011000200008.

Though neglected by Humean scholars, Pascal's thoughts seem to be very important to Hume in many ways and along all his life. This paper focus more on epistemological and matephysical matters, than on morals or religion. Hume uses some of Pascal's ideas concerning scepticism and arguments concerning the cogito and the Cartesian view of science.

Keywords : Hume; Pascal; scepticism; cogito; science; first principles.
