In this paper I explore how  Hume's theory of justice brings "right" and "virtue" together, and point out some problems that his approach creates. First, I briefly describe Hume's general moral theory. I then take up the difference between "virtue" and "right" and, finally, Hume's attempt to harmonize these two terms by means of the notion of "artificial virtue".
