Sample text

Thus if the explicit position fails to conform to the practice of the world, the tacit position conforms all too well, in sacrificing any real concern with free consent. If this sacrifice is judged too great, then we are led to a fourth (and final) species of the theory—hypothetical contractarianism. 13 The theory does not suppose that this choice is or ought to be expressed in actual agreement, and does not require that the choice enter into actual belief about the rationale of society. A system of property and government is justified if it would be the object of agreement among rational persons in a suitable choice situation, whether or not actual persons consider the system justified.

If he should still adhere to the dictates of justice, then mutual advantage cannot be necessary to the rationale of justice. If he should consult the dictates of selfpreservation, then total advantage can be sufficient. The fifth set of circumstances concerns the relation between human beings and inferior creatures. Hume’s position here is decisively against total advantage, and for mutual advantage. Were there a species of creatures intermingled with men, which, though rational, were possessed of such inferior strength, both of body and mind, that they were incapable of all resistance, and could never…make us feel the effects of their resentment; the necessary consequence…is that we should be bound by the laws of humanity to give gentle usage to these creatures, but should not…lie under any restraint of justice with regard to them, nor could they possess any right or property,…as no inconvenience ever results from the exercise of a power, so firmly established in nature, the restraints of justice and property, being totally useless, would never have place in so unequal a confederacy.

Rather, he holds that government must be supported by the opinion that no alternative would afford greater mutual advantage—that the established government is, at least from a practical point of view, optimal. But different individuals will still have clear preferences for alternatives, although they will not agree on any one alternative. In such a situation, Hume supposes that opposed individual preferences are best resolved by an appeal to salience. Established authority captures the imagination.
