THE SUN WILL NOT RISE A second philosophical meditation on a nightmarish excerpt from David Hume's work: An Inquiry Concerning Human Understanding. Philosophical anxieties ... Short film 9 minutes seven seconds.






All the objects of human reason or inquiry may naturally be divided into two kinds, to wit, relations of ideas , and matters of fact . Of the first kind are the sciences of geometry, algebra, and arithmetic; and in short, every affirmation which is either intuitively or demonstratively certain. ...Propositions of this kind are discoverable by the mere operation of thought, without dependence on what is anywhere existent in the universe. ... Matters of fact, which are the second objects of human reason, are not ascertained in the same manner; ...The contrary of every matter of fact is still possible; because it can never imply a contradiction, and is conceived by the mind with the same facility and distinctness, as if ever so conformable to reality.
