Robert J. Fogelin:
Defense of Hume on Miracles - new book

ISBN: 9781400825776

ID: 9781400825776

Since its publication in the mid-eighteenth century, Hume&apos s discussion of miracles has been the target of severe and often ill-tempered attacks. In this book, one of our leading historians of philosophy offers a systematic response to these attacks. Arguing that these criticisms have--from the very start--rested on misreadings, Robert Fogelin begins by providing a narrative of the way Hume&apos s argument actually unfolds. What Hume&apos s critics (and even some of his defenders) have failed to see is that Hume&apos s primary argument depends on fixing the appropriate standards of evaluating testimony presented on behalf of a miracle. Given the definition of a miracle, Hume quite reasonably argues that the standards for evaluating such testimony must be extremely high. Hume then argues that, as a matter of fact, no testimony on behalf of a religious miracle has even come close to meeting the appropriate standards for acceptance. Fogelin illustrates that Hume&apos s critics have consistently misunderstood the structure of this argument--and have saddled Hume with perfectly awful arguments not found in the text. He responds first to some early critics of Hume&apos s argument and then to two recent critics, David Johnson and John Earman. Fogelin&apos s goal, however, is not to " bash the bashers," but rather to show that Hume&apos s treatment of miracles has a coherence, depth, and power that makes it still the best work on the subject.
