Haven't finished the book as yet, but I was excited to read such an intelligent writer. Today we have so few writers and thinkers willing to challenge conventional thought, religion etc. Where are the courageous, intelligent writers today. With the passing of Hitchens, only Dawkins and Chomsky come to mind in this class.
How to review one of the truly great works of British Philosophy? - This is a singular way of reasoning that still resonates.
It isn't necessary to agree with every argument he makes. Just follow his reasoning and his (from our current prejudices, perhaps) his rationalist preconceptions....
It might take a 21st Century reader a few pages to become comfortable with his language and style. But once the reader is "in" he is a wonderfully clear thinker. Not at all abstruse.
Classic and essential. Any understanding of human nature starts here with Hume's classic interpretation of all that we are and are not.
In this book Hume assumes a true philosophical approach to the most fundamental qualities of human life such as values. Open-minded and analytical approach to issues paves the way for true enlightenment. It demands intellectual acumen and challenges the credibility of some established sources of knowledge.
I read all the British rationalists in college, and Hume was the best. I am enjoying reacquainting myself with his work.
