BALIEIRO, Marcos Ribeiro. Hume e os propósitos da filosofia. Kriterion [online]. 2011, vol.52, n.124, pp.385-396. ISSN 0100-512X.

Hume is generally seen as a philosopher which, besides defending skeptical principles, intented to offer a new foundation for science, based on the accurate study of human nature. In fact, there is no doubt that he considers this to be one of the main purposes his philosophy should serve. In this work, we shall attempt to show that this is a limited view of Hume's thought, as it loses sight of the fact that, in posterior texts, he intended to establish the philosophical activity as something that should be developed in order to somehow form the moral character of its public.

Palabras clave : Hume; Scottish philosophy; morals; 18th century.
