Probability and Hume's inductive scepticism by D. C Stove( Book )

17 editions published between 1973 and 2011 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the sceptical view which he took of inductive inference, Hume only ever gave one argument. That argument is the sole subject-matter of this book. The book is divided into three parts. Part one presents some remarks on probability. Part two identifies Hume's argument for inductive scepticism. Finally, the third part evaluates Hume's argument for inductive scepticism

Popper and after : four modern irrationalists by D. C Stove( Book )

31 editions published between 1982 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popper and After: Four Modern Irrationalists focuses on a tendency in the philosophy of science, of which the leading representatives are Professor Sir Karl Popper, the late Professor Imre Lakatos, and Professors T. S. Kuhn and P. K. Feyerabend. Their philosophy of science is in substance irrationalist. They doubt, or deny outright, that there can be any reason to believe any scientific theory; and a fortiori they doubt or deny, for example, that there has been any accumulation of knowledge in recent centuries
Scientific irrationalism : origins of a postmodern cult by D. C Stove( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its inception in the 1940s, the field of science studies, originally intended to bridge the gap between science and the humanities, has been the center of controversy and debate. The most notable figures in this debate are Thomas Kuhn and Karl Popper. In Scientific Irrationalism: Origins of a Postmodern Cult, David Stove demonstrates how extravagant has been the verbiage wasted on this issue and how irrational the combatants have been. He shows that Kuhn and Popper share considerable common ground. Stove argues that the problems all reside in the reasoning of the critics. He identifies the logical mistakes by and conceptual allusions made by Kuhn and Popper and their supporters, as well as their collective dependency on a single argument made by the philosopher of the Scottish Enlightenment, David Hume. He then demonstrates how little potency that argument actually has for the claims of science."--Jacket

On enlightenment by D. C Stove( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"He advocates a conservative "go slow" approach to change, pointing out that today's social structures are so large and complex that any widespread social reform will have innumerable unforeseen consequences. For example, the welfare state may diminish individual initiative. The use of pesticides may increase the food supply while polluting the water supply, the popularizing of university education, may lead to a decline in academic standards. Since government has a virtual monopoly on large-scale change. It follows, in Stove's view, that its powers must be limited in order to prevent large-scale damage, instead, he argues that reforms, when they are to be made at all, must be realistic, local, necessary and never coercive."--Jacket

What's wrong with benevolence : happiness, private property, and the limits of enlightenment by D. C Stove( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is benevolence a virtue? In many cases it appears to be so. But when it comes to the "enlarged benevolence" of the Enlightenment, David Stove argues that the answer is clearly no. In this insightful, provocative essay, Stove builds a case for the claim that when benevolence is universal, disinterested and external, it regularly leads to the forced redistribution of wealth, which in turn leads to decreased economic incentives, lower rates of productivity, and increased poverty. As Stove points out, there is an air of paradox in saying that benevolence may be a cause of poverty. But there should
