Title: David Builes
Title: A Humean Non-Humeanism

Abstract: How should we account for the extraordinary regularity in the  
world? Humeans and non-Humeans sharply disagree. Non-Humeans typically  
think that there must be some fundamental modal element to reality, which  
in some way guarantees this extraordinary regularity. Perhaps there are  
fundamental laws, powers, necessitation relations, or counterfactuals which  
necessitate the regularity in the world. Humeans are skeptical of any such  
modal primitives. Anything that guarantees necessary connections between  
wholly distinct entities is metaphysically suspect. By way of reply,  
non-Humeans object that Humeans have no way of accounting for the  
regularity in the world. Both sides of the debate have powerful objections  
to the other side. What are we to believe? I will argue that there is a  
single view which can accommodate the core insights of both Humeans and  
non-Humeans. Instead of picking sides, we should be Humean Non-Humeans.​
