Empiricism To Scepticism

Sudipta Dutta Roy (Author)
Synopsis Empiricism to Scepticism is an in-depth study of the journey of British Empiricism, commencing with the idealistic as well as materialistic empiricism of Locke, and culminating with the skepticism of Hume. The thrust of the book lies in unravelling the root of this transition—from empiricism to scepticism—by tracing the thoughts of Locke and Hume to those of their predecessors and contemporaries. It has been shown that the immense influences of Aristotle, Descartes and the seventeenth century scientists on Locke, and the impacts of Locke and Berkeley on Hume moulded their thoughts in such a fashion that Lockean empiricism led the way to Hume’s scepticism. The study of British Empiricism from this point of view is expected to inculcate a new look at, and new interest in the subject.
