David Hume on Association - Dictionary of Arguments
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.
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.
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.
Association/Hume: association cannot select. If the mind was only determined by principles, there would be no morality._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
