BLFirst study devoted entirely to Hume's influential views on freedom and responsibility David Hume is generally credited with the classic statement of the `compatibilist' position in the free will dispute. It is here argued that Hume's views on this subject, although largely influential, have nevertheless been seriously misrepresented. Classical readings have entirely overlooked Hume's naturalistic concerns and commitments, those very aspects of his general strategy which are of particular significance to the contemporary discussion.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Russell's book, which is the first full analysis of Hume's theories on this key theme (freedom), does justice to their complexity and systematic character, and by relating them to more recent debates shows us, once again, why Hume remains such a continual source of philosophical stimulus. It is excellent creative scholarship. * Terence Penelhum, Canadian Journal of Philosophy *
This book is a meticulous, wide-ranging reexamination of Hume's views on liberty, necessity, and moral responsibility ... Russell's account imbues Hume's texts with fresh significance and interest. * Ira Singer, Ethics *
In general, Russell's book makes an important contribution to the literature on Hume's moral philosophy ... and Russell's discussion of Hume's relevance for contemporary debates over naturalism in ethics will be of interest to a wider philosophical audience. * Donald Ainslie, Philosophical Review *
Freedom and Moral Sentiment offers much that will be of interest both to Hume scholars and to those concerned with issues of free will and responsibility. It takes an appropriately critical approach to Hume's positions, which it shows to be of both historical and continuing importance. * Kenneth A Richman, Canadian Philosophical Reviews *
this is an interesting and useful book for Hume scholars. * Vere Chappell, Phil & Phen Res *
