David Hume (1711 – 1776) is often considered as a sceptic about the existence of causal powers or the necessary connection between cause and effect, and his work is interpreted in various books on the history of philosophy in this way. In the last century, however, new interpreters have emerged who are destroying this traditional image of Hume's philosophy. These philosophers, known as “The New Humeans”, also consider Hume to be a sceptic, but not as to the objective existence of causal forces, but only as to the recognizability of those forces. The presented article deals with the main arguments of the new interpretation and connects them with Hume's work. The conclusion of the article presents our own argument on the issue.
