Beaudoin on Hume, Swinburne, and the Design Argument
I recently noted some of John Beaudoin's nice work in philosophy of religion, so I thought I should mention that he has also written an interesting defense of Hume's critique of the design argument. In "On Some Criticisms of Hume's Principle of Proportioning Cause to Effect" (Philo 2:2 (Fall-Winter 1999)), Beaudoin responds to Richard Swinburne's objections to Hume's criticisms. Here is the link to Beaudoin's article.
