An Introduction to David Hume Derek Meakin 21/01/2020 10:30
Born and educated in Edinburgh, David Hume (1711-76) was a brilliant product of the Scottish Enlightenment and an influential figure in European philosophy. Kant, for instance,claimed that Hume had awakened him from his "dogmatic slumber." Like all Enlightenment thinkers, Hume recognized the importance in our lives of reason. But he argued that reason has serious limitations, not least that it is the slave of the passions - meaning that our conduct is driven by emotions and that reason is a mere instrument in that process. Hume also argued that there are serious limits to human knowledge. Turning to ethics, be rejected the idea that all moral values derive from reason and claimed that most of them arise form such human sentiments as sympathy and compassion (though he admitted there are "artificial" values such as social justice). Hume's philosophy was profoundly challenging and remains so today. Enquiries:johnsonvlntn@aol.com
