About the Author

Jacqueline Taylor is Professor of philosophy at the University of San Francisco. She co-edited the second edition of the Cambridge Companion to Hume, and has published many articles on Hume, as well as on contemporary moral psychology.


In Reflecting Subjects, Jacqueline Taylor gives a fresh and rigorous development of the connection between Humeas theory of the passions and his moral philosophy, cast in the form of Humean social theory. It is an important and helpful book for anyone working on these topics in several respects. * Nathan Sasser, Journal of Scottish Philosophy *
Taylor's book displays a refreshingly concrete awareness of the ways in which concepts traditionally investigated by philosophers are socially realizeda In providing a wealth of pertinent detail, her book makes valuable contributions to a more three-dimensional understanding of Hume, especially in the later chapters * Christopher Williams, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews Online *
