About the book:

The terms nature and artifice date back to the origins of western political thought. Historically, political philosophers have debated using either nature or artifice to explain the foundations of politics. This book demonstrates it is possible to reconcile nature and artifice, using the arguments presented by the great political philosopher of the Scottish Enlightenment, David Hume. Through a careful analysis of Hume's political writings, it traces how a definition of politics as nature and artifice must be understood in an historical context.
