IL GOVERNO DELL’OPINIONE. L’EPISTEMOLOGIA POLITICA DI DAVID HUME

LUCA COBBE

Abstract


The essay analyses David Hume’s political epistemology by focusing on the issue of “general opinion” in its relationship with the questions of poli­tical obligation and of the production and infraction of order. Opinion emerges as the keystone of a new conception of politics in which a com­muni­cative vi­sion of society redefines both the tasks of government and the con­cept of or­der. While government is supposed to protect order, it results in facts as its pro­duct.
