David Hume on Association - Dictionary of Arguments

I 13
Association/Hume: association is a natural law. Ideas: the effect of the association of ideas has three forms:
1. general idea (similarity)
2. procedure/regularity (through idea of "substance" or "mode")
3. relation: an idea draws another to itself. Thereby ideas do not acquire new quality.
I 126f
Association/principle/Hume: problems:
1. Association only explains the form of thought, not the content.
2. Association does not explain the individual contents of the individual.
Solution: the explanation lies in the circumstances of the perception - also substances, general ideas and modes require the circumstances.
>Circumstances, >Perception, >Thoughts.
I 137f
Associations/KantVsHume/Deleuze: the "Law of Reproduction" (frequent consecutive ideas set a connection) assumes that the phenomena actually follow such a rule (Kant pro). There must be a reason a priori -> synthesis of the imagination (not of the senses!).
>Imagination, >Senses, >a priori, >Principles., >Principles/Hume.
KantVsHume: Hume's dualism (relations are outside of things ) forces him to grasp that as the accordance of subject with nature. But this cannot be a priori, otherwise it would remain unnoticed.
I 154
Association/Hume: association cannot select. If the mind was only determined by principles, there would be no morality.
