Hume viewed religion as a way to relieve the anxiety caused by our fate, but as he saw it, the natural development of different monotheisms and religions often resulted in persecution and war. Hume on Religion introduces his major work, Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion, and assesses Hume's life and the background to the work. The ideas and text of the work are also considered along with Hume's continuing importance to philosophy today.
