Abstract

ALMEIDA, Pedro Jonas de. A LÓGICA DA FICÇÃO NO "TRATADO" DE HUME. Kriterion [online]. 2016, vol.57, n.134, pp.455-469. ISSN 0100-512X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0100-512x2016n13405pja.

In Book I, part IV, of the "Treatise of Human Nature", Hume develops what we will call logic of fiction. It is not the case of a mere error of imagination as fancy, but a tendency to feign ideas, entities and objects from the perceptions in the mind. The result is a rich and new sense of fiction that allows Hume to establish a natural history of Philosophy, describing the unavoidable genesis of metaphysical concepts. From a Kantian point of view, we will approach this subject by highlighting the similarities as well as the differences between the natural fictions and the transcendental illusion.

Keywords : Fiction; Fancy; Error; Transcendental Illusion.
