The Book

The father of modern scepticism and perhaps the most important English philosopher, Hume was lauded within his own lifetime as a pivotal figure of the Enlightenment, with his highly original theories of perception, personal identity, causation, politics, morality, and religion. Hume's voice, lucid and witty, is still an acute critic of human nature and Western thought.
