Title: Dominic Dimech
Title: Hume's 'Residual' Scepticism about Induction

Abstract: Hume consciously reflects on the nature of scepticism in Treatise  
1.4.7 (“Conclusion of this Book”) and Section 12 of his first Enquiry (“Of  
the Academical or Sceptical Philosophy”). I argue that we should read Hume  
as espousing a ‘residual’ form of scepticism in these sections. This means  
that Hume’s final, moderate sceptical position is a product of entertaining  
extreme sceptical worries but finding that they are impermanent.  
Recognition of this is important in its own right, as T 1.4.7 and EHU 12  
are puzzling and central texts. But I also argue that this residual  
scepticism is informative for the debate over reading Hume on induction  
specifically. It turns out that the now popular approach of reading Hume as  
not an inductive sceptic is going to struggle accounting for Hume’s  
residual scepticism, because it cannot explain the relationship between his  
extreme doubts and his final position.
