David Hume and the Scottish Enlightenment. 8pm. 02.12.14. Farm Road S2

Recommended Posts

David Hume was one of the most important figures in the Scottish Enlightenment, and in the history of Western philosophy.

 

Robin Grinter will set out Hume's ideas and say why he thinks that Hume's thinking gives one of the most powerful justifications in philosphy for a wide range of our everyday understanding.

 

He will show how this reveals much of Hume's thinking as evident in the tradition that we recognise as Humanist. He was a secular thinker, using a scientific approach, seeking evidence to prove arguments and dismissing all other thinking as speculation that often leads, particularly in the case of religion, to dogmatism
