Hume, reform, and the perfect Commonwealth : an attempt to show that Hume's \"Idea of a perfect Commonwealth\" ought to be taken seriously

Nicholas Eliopoulos
The aim of this thesis is to show that Hume's 1752 essay "Idea of a Perfect Commonwealth" ought to be taken seriously in the sense that Hume wrote this essay in the hope that the republican form of government it describes and recommends, a republican form of government "modelled with masterly skill" (Essays 528), would one day be established in Britain.
