About this topic
Summary David Hume (1711-1766) was a Scottish thinker who made substantial contributions to the fields of epistemology, metaphysics, religion, mind, aesthetics, morals, politics, history and economics. He is traditionally classified as one of the three most important British empiricists along with John Locke (1632-1704) and George Berkeley (1685-1753).  
Key works

Hume’s major philosophical works include A Treatise of Human Nature (1739-1740), An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding (1748), An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals (1751) and Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion (1779). Oxford has recent scholarly editions of the Treatise (Norton & Norton 2007), the Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding (Beauchamp 2006), and the Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals (Beauchamp 2006). Editions of the Dialogues include Coleman 2007, Gaskin 1998/2009 and Kemp Smith 1935. Hume also wrote numerous essays on a variety of topics collected together in Essays, Moral, Political and Literary (Miller 1987) and a six-volume History of England (1754-1761) (Todd 1983).

    We want to know about philosophers’ lives in part to see how they applied their philosophy to their own lives. Plato’s account of Socrates’ life, trial, and death sets a great example here, perhaps never equalled, just as few philosophers equal Socrates in integrity and courage.
