I need an explanation for this Philosophy question to help me study.
Read David Hume, An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals, Sections I-II and the first three paragraphs of Appendix I (pp. 152-162 and 179-181 in the course text).
What is David Hume’s main argument in this week’s reading? Make sure you quote from the text! Further, what do you think? Do you make your ethical decisions/choices based on your emotions or your thoughts? Give an example from your life and/or any significant news story that has taken place in the last week, that either proves or disproves David Hume’s position. Make sure you cite your sources.
