That easy intimacy which he no longer had, once he moved away from home, is eloquently celebrated. When in the presence of a loved friend or relative, he writes, “the blood ﬂows with a new tide: the heart is elevated: And the whole man acquires a vigour which he cannot command in his solitary and calm moments” (T 353). There would be many solitary and calm moments during his “country retreat” in France while he was writing his Treatise. ” The second is found to be the main ingredient in the amorous passion, since it is a medium between “the most reﬁ ned passion of the soul,” esteem, and “the most gross and vulgar,” lust (T 395).
He relies on self-analysis. And there is considerable resemblance between the cause, pleasure in ﬁne possessions, and the effect, plea sure in oneself as possessor. Had Hume begun his Treatise with the passions, we might have had a quite different analysis of the causal relation. Pride is, of course, a deadly sin for Christians, and Hume in Book 2 has Malebranche’s treatment of it, in his Search for Truth, in fairly clear view. Some of Hume’s theses echo Malebranche, for example, when he speaks of the effects on our mind of any sort of perceived grandeur.
Hume went on, in Part 4 of Book 1, to take several “systems” of philosophy, ancient and modern, and to subject them to a fairly skeptical survey. He also attempts some philosophy of his own, to explain why we believe that material things, and our own minds, continue to exist as the same things even when changing and when unobserved by us (in our case, in dreamless sleep). These beliefs are as regular a feature of our minds as is our faith in causal inference, and so perhaps should have been looked at in Book 3, before being subjected to skeptical survey in Book 4.
