David Hume, born May 7 [April 26, Old Style],EdinburghScotland—died August 25,EdinburghScottish philosopher, historian, economist, and essayist known especially for his philosophical empiricism and skepticism. Like benevolence and anger, they are motivational desires aimed at bringing about another's happiness or misery; but unlike benevolence and anger, they apply quite generally—not only to those we love or hate, but even to complete strangers. Hume finds two ways for something like unexercised power to influence our passions: first, predictions of human behavior are absent "strong motives" plagued with uncertainty, and we can receive anticipatory pleasure or unease from probable or merely possible exercise of power tentatively reasoning from our own past conduct to guess what we might do ; second, a "false sensation of liberty" presents all feasible courses of action as fully possible to us, giving us an anticipatory pleasure unrelated to any reasoning from experience.
