In his magisterial Treatise of Human Nature, David Hume stated that:
“The sole end of logic is to explain the principles and operations of our reasoning faculty, and the nature of our ideas; morals and criticism regard our tastes and sentiments; and politics consider men as united in society, and dependent on each other. In these four sciences of Logic, Morals, Criticism, and Politics, is comprehended almost everything, which it can any way import us to be acquainted with, or which can tend either to the improvement or ornament of the human mind.”
I have degrees in law and philosophy from the University of Melbourne. I love food, conversation, travel, philosophy, law and politics. This blog will feature thoughts on some mixture of these.
