HUMEANISMS

In various branches of philosophy, several positions are called "Humean". If someone holds that modal features supervene on the spatiotemporal distribution of fundamental non-modal properties, then (s)he is a Humean. If someone argues that our reasons for action cannot be explained in terms of our beliefs without reference to desires, then (s)he is a Humean. This workshop seeks answers to questions about various forms of Humeanisms. Although Humeanism is a well-known philosophical view, the conditions for labeling a position Humean are not always clear. One might say that Humeans are those who take themselves as modern adherents to Hume's philosophy -- but under what interpretation? Vice versa, in the light of contemporary Humeanisms, how can we answer the question whether Hume, himself, was a Humean? Can one elaborate contemporary Humeanism as a unified, all-purpose strategy for approaching philosophical problems? Papers will discuss (a) Humean strategies in metaphysics, epistemology, practical philosophy or phenomenology, and (b) theories in these areas that engage critically and constructively with Hume's own philosophy.
