Scepticisme et morale

Abstract : Hume's moral skepticism cannot be reduced to his criticism of moral rationalism. It also appears in the role that Hume gives to the imagination in morality. In the Treatise, the imagination is implied in the correction of our moral sentiments, and in the choice of the rules which determine property and the objects of allegiance. In the second Inquiry, Hume's skepticism in morals is depicted more precisely, as Hume distinguishes it from four forms of excessive skepticism. Thus, Hume's moral skepticism turns out to be a moderate skepticism, though still rejecting moral rationalism.
