This question already has an answer here:
In David Humes' book, "A Treatise of Human Nature" he states that reason is the slave to the passions.
"Reason is, and ought only to be the slave of the passions, and can never pretend to any other office than to serve and obey them. (T 2.3.3 p. 415)"
Could someone explain this to me, preferably reconstructing in a premise-conclusion format.
