Overview The essays in this collection, written in honor of noted Hume scholar Annette Baier, reflect the influence of her work in the area of philosophical naturalism. Philosophical naturalism has ethical and epistemological implications that often run contrary to the rationalist tendencies of academic philosophy. These essays collectively examine the four main themes of Baier's naturalism: a general resistance to thinking of persons atomistically, the importance of trust between persons and the mutual dependence of persons, the positive role of emotions in human judgment, and the modes of self-correction available to persons so conceived.
