Precis on David Hume.
Instructions for this assignment are attached in a file. Please write 1000-1500 words. Use only “The Classical
Utilitarians: Bentham and Mill” and “An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals” as your two sources for
writing this paper and make sure to include page numbers when you are citing them. Less than half of the
essay should be a summarization of Hume’s moral philosophy (as per his book), 1/4 of the paper should be a
critical comparison of the Utilitarianism of Mill and Hume. This should be a compare and contrast of their
philosophies as per the books. The last >1/4 of the paper should be a critical engagement with some aspect of
Hume’s theory (sentiment, the method, race, gender, the monster, etc..). This should be most of the second
half of the paper- write more on this than on comparing Mill and Hume
