Liberty and Necessity in Hume’s Enquiry

The task of this assignment is to use the line of thinking Hume develops to provide and explain answers to the following questions:

  1. What is the source of our idea of necessity?
  2. What is the source of our idea of liberty?
  3. How does taking this into account help us address questions about the compatibility or incompatibility between the two?

Write a one to three page essay articulating Hume’s view. Regardless of whether you (think you) agree or disagree with his view, explain it as clearly and persuasively as you can. What is unique, interesting, and worthy of further discussion?

Prepare you informal essay and submit to the Dropbox on ANGEL prior to class on Monday 11/9.
