Early Modern Philosophy

I am currently exploring Boyle's influence on Locke, specifically with respect to their respective accounts of kinds, essences and classification. I am also working on a paper in which I suggest a friendly amendment to the received view on Hume's account of necessary connection. I argue that what might be called the philosophical notion of necessary connection can be traced to something other than the feeling that accompanies casual inference, namely, to our idea of logical necessity.
