Reflection and the Stability of Belief

Essays on Descartes, Hume, and Reid

Louis Loeb

  • Brings together a selection of Loeb's articles on Descartes' epistemology and the problem of the circle that have not previously appeared together
  • Juxtaposes Loeb's naturalistic, psychological treatments of Descartes and Hume
  • Includes an extensive introduction that reconsiders Loeb's publications on modern epistemology in light of his most recent work, and addresses methodological issues about the interpretation of the individual figures
  • Revisits Loeb's early views on "British Empiricism," providing a detailed account of Hume's relationship to Locke (this in a paper not yet interpedently published)
