Uitgebreide omschrijving

A compelling exploration of the convergence of Jane Austens literary themes and characters with David Humes views on morality and human nature. Argues that the normative perspectives endorsed in Jane Austens novels are best characterized in terms of a Humean approach, and that the merits of Humes account of ethical, aesthetic and epistemic virtue are vividly illustrated by Austens writing. Illustrates how Hume and Austen complement one another, each providing a lens that allows us to expand and elaborate on the ideas of the other Proposes that literature may serve as a thought experiment, articulating hypothetical cases which allow the reader to test her moral intuitions Contributes to ongoing debates on the philosophy of literature, ethics, and emotion
