Hume and Causation

This is a painting by a former student of mine, Jihan Saba. It’s titled “David Hume and Causation,” and it was inspired by class material concerning Hume from a class I taught on metaphysics and philosophy of science, which Jihan was a student in. I have a lot of sentimental attachment to this painting since it was the product of a student’s passionate interest in some of the class material that I love to teach.
