6 David Hume ( )
8 Hume s Ethics Morals have an influence on actions and affections Reason alone can have no such influence So, morality is not a conclusion of reason It consists of no matter of fact
9 David Hume In every system of morality I have met with I have noticed that the author proceeds for some time reasoning in the ordinary way to establish the existence of a God, or making points about human affairs, and then he suddenly surprises me by moving from propositions with the usual copula is (or is not ) to ones that are connected by ought (or ought not ).
10 David Hume This seems like a very small change, but it is highly important. For as this ought (or ought not ) expresses some new relation or affirmation, it needs to be pointed out and explained; and a reason should be given for how this new relation can be inconceivably! a deduction from others that are entirely different from it.
11 Is > Ought Moral reasoning goes from is and is not to ought and ought not How can we go from is to ought? Reason supplies no connection
13 Is => Ought? Why is cruelty wrong? Why is generosity good? No fact of the matter to be found in them
14 Feelings... tis the object of feeling, not of reason. It lies in yourself, not in the object. An action or sentiment, or character is virtuous or vicious; why? Because its view causes a pleasure or uneasiness of a particular kind.
15 Is => Ought? Sentiment or feeling takes us from is to ought Phase 1, Description:... is... Phase 2: Feelings: That arouses a feeling of approbation or disapprobation in me... Phase 3, Normativity:... ought...
16 Slave of the passions Reason is, and ought to be, the slave of the passions. Moral sense: capacity for the feelings that constitute the basis for our moral judgments

20 Laws of Nature The signal achievement of the scientific revolution was the development of a system of universal and necessary laws of nature s = 1/2gt2 F = 0 => a = 0 F = ma Fa,b = Fb,a G = gm 1m2/r 2
21 Laws of Nature Universal: apply to all situations, all times Necessary: describe what must happen
22 Scientific Societies British Royal Society (1640s; chartered 1662) French Royal Academy of Sciences (1650s; chartered 1666) Observatories at Paris (1667) and Greenwich (1675) Scientific journals (1665)
23 Enlightenment The Age of Reason We can know the nature and laws of Nature Human beings Society Ethics and politics Immanuel Kant: Dare to know!
24 Morality The Enlightenment, scientific image of man threatens to undermine morality But Enlightenment thinkers approach morality and politics by affirming objective, universal laws, expressing a moral ideal How can these be reconciled?
26 Liberty Classical Enlightenment thinkers (John Locke, Immanuel Kant) take this as a brief for liberty and respect for individual rights Skepticism, undermining of religious authority (Locke and Kant were Protestants) > tolerance for differing viewpoints
27 Enlightenment Denis Diderot ( ): 28 volume Encyclopedia; materialism: This world is only a mass of molecules.
28 Enlightenment Baron Paul d Holbach ( ): materialism, atheism
29 Enlightenment Enlightenment thinkers agree about some basic theses: Truth: there are truths that are absolute, independently of any individual mind, and thus universal.
30 Enlightenment Knowledge: it is possible to have objective knowledge of some of them.
31 Enlightenment Reason: reason is the best way to achieve and justify such knowledge.
32 Enlightenment Progress: acting rationally in response to objective knowledge improves our chances of achieving our aims.
33 Theory of evolution Later in the 19th century: Charles Darwin ( ) On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection (1859) The Descent of Man (1871) Random mutation, natural selection
34 Humanity These views (materialism, evolutionary theory) are two-level theories Surface, conscious level Underlying, explanatory level Change our concept of what it is to be human We normally aren t aware of the ultimate explanations of our behavior
35 Two-level Theories Surface level, to be explained Hidden, deep level, which explains the surface level
36 Two-level Theories The atomic theory of matter is a two-level theory There is nothing wrong with such theories But they generate puzzles when applied to human beings How do we make sense of ourselves as agents who decide, intend, and act?

38 Philosophy The aim of philosophy, abstractly formulated, is to understand how things in the broadest possible sense of the term hang together in the broadest possible sense of the term.
39 Two Images For the philosopher is confronted not by one complex many dimensional picture, the unity of which, such as it is, he must come to appreciate; but by two pictures of essentially the same order of complexity, each of which purports to be a complete picture of man-in-theworld, and which, after separate scrutiny, he must fuse into one vision. Let me refer to these two perspectives, respectively, as the manifest and the scientific images of man-in-the-world.
40 Stereoscopic Vision
41 Manifest Image The 'manifest' image of man-in-the-world can be characterized in two ways, which are supplementary rather than alternative. It is, first, the framework in terms of which man came to be aware of himself as man-in-the-world. It is the framework in terms of which, to use an existentialist turn of phrase, man first encountered himself which is, of course, when he came to be man.
42 Objects The basic objects of the manifest image: persons, animals, lower forms of life and merely material things, like rivers and stones.
43 Manifest Image
44 Scientific Image The scientific image arises out of the manifest image, by the scientific method: careful observation and measurement, hypothesis testing, experimentation But something new happens with the introduction of theoretical entities (atoms, microparticles, genes, etc.) that are unobservable but causally active
45 Macro v. micro Manifest image: Macro-level Scientific image: Micro-level
46 The Images Manifest image: rationality, morality, responsibility, freedom, practical reason Scientific image: governed by causal laws, value-free, purely determined
47 Clash of the Images How, then, are we to evaluate the conflicting claims of the manifest image and the scientific image thus provisionally interpreted to constitute the true and, in principle, complete account of man-in-the-world?
49 Normativity the irreducibility of the personal is the irreducibility of the 'ought' to the 'is'.
50 The Space of Reasons The irreducible element of the manifest image is normativity The scientific image describes the realm of law But in the manifest image we conceive ourselves as bring in the space of reasons Not a different realm, but a different way of seeing the same realm
52 Manifest image Surface: We think of ourselves as free We act for reasons We act rightly or wrongly, virtuously or viciously We take responsibility
53 Scientific image Depth: We are determined by something we aren t conscious of Our reasons are mere rationalizations Morality is either nonsense or reduces to something else Since we are not free, we have no responsibility
