David Hume


A few years ago I worked on the BBC documentary Age of Genius, presented by Andrew Marr (although I didn’t get to meet him). The documentary celebrated the life and works of David Hume (1711-1776) in the context of the Scottish Enlightenment more generally.

James Harris has recently published a major new intellectual biography of Hume entitled Hume: An Intellectual Biography

For readers interested in the history of Scottish philosophy more generally see Alexander Broadie’s major new work A History of Scottish Philosophy. See also his The Scottish Enlightenment for an overview of this entire period in Scottish history and intellectual culture. See also his Why Scottish Philosophy Matters.
