    Hume and the Politics of Enlightenment.Thomas W. Merrill - 2015 - New York, NY: Cambridge University Press.
    'Methinks I am like a man, who having narrowly escap'd shipwreck', David Hume writes in A Treatise of Human Nature, 'has yet the temerity to put out to sea in the same leaky weather-beaten vessel, and even carries his ambition so far as to think of compassing the globe'. With these words, Hume begins a memorable depiction of the crisis of philosophy and his turn to moral and political philosophy as the path forward. In this groundbreaking work, Thomas W.

    Property and Sovereignty, Information and Audience.Thomas W. Merrill - 2017 - Theoretical Inquiries in Law 18 (2):417-445.

Where it failed was in suggesting that the choice between these modes of governance is a matter of dialing one up and the other down. The relationship between political sovereignty and property is complex, and varies depending on the audience of property we have in view. With respect to some audiences — strangers and transactors — those who favor a strong (...)
