What Hume called the necessary connection between cause and effectis what the Aristotelian tradition called the per se as opposed to the accidental.

– Hume: we see the brick fly and the window break, but no necessary connection. What am I seeing when I see something destructive or dangerous? If I’m trying to intimidate you,  do I know that I am? I suppose it could be a projection of my habits, but the remedy of this is a claim about being.
