Zásady pro vypracování
Based on close reading of Henry Fielding's The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling, the thesis is going to construct Fielding's moral philosophy, contextualize Fielding's thought and discuss relevant philosophers of the Scottish Enlightenment. The work is going to open with a detailed account of Fielding's divine, philosophical and literary influences with a specific focus on Latitudinarianism and the Moral Sense school of thought. The core of the thesis is going to delve into Fielding's moral philosophy of the good heart as articulated in Joseph Andrews, Tom Jones, “An Essay on the Characters of Men,” The Covent-Garden Journal and further works of Fielding’s however Tom Jones is going to remain the chief source. In the latter part, David Hume's moral philosophy, as presented in A Treatise of Human Nature and then in An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals, is going to be expounded and, finally, the homogeneity of Fielding's and Hume's moral thought is going to be asserted.

Among secondary sources, the thesis is going to draw on Bernard Harrison’s Henry Fielding’s Tom Jones: The Novelist as Moral Philosopher, which argues for Fielding’s status as a moral philosopher and details his technique; Martin C. Battestin’s comprehensive Henry Fielding: A Life is going to be a substantial source for Fielding’s thought and his development as a writer and as a social thinker; as well as Battestin’s The Moral Basis of Fielding’s Art: A Study of Joseph Andrews which is going to yield Fielding’s Latitudinarian influences in full. Markman Ellis’ The Politics of Sensibility: Race, Gender and Commerce in the Sentimental Novel is going to be probed for the subtleties of the concept of sensibility. As for David Hume, Rachel Cohon’s Hume’s Morality: Feeling and Fabrication is going to be mined for an up-to-date theoretical grappling with Hume’s moral thought. Relevant online pages of The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy are going to be studied in depth for insightful analyses of the philosophers in question.
