David Hume

David Hume

was a Scottish philosopher, historian, economist, and essayist, known especially for his philosophical empiricism and skepticism
There is a very remarkable inclination in human nature to bestow on external objects the same emotions which it observes in itself, and to find every where those ideas which are most present to it.More David Hume quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A CAUSE is an object precedent and contiguous to another, and so united with it that the idea of the one determines the mind to form the idea of the other, and the impression of the one to form a more lively idea of the other.More David Hume quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Your corn is ripe today, mine will be so tomorrow. 'Tis profitable for us both that I should labor with you today, and that you should aid me tomorrow. I have no kindness for you, and know you have as little for me. I will not, therefore, take any pains upon your account . . . Here then I leave you to labor alone; you treat me in the same manner. The seasons change, and both of us lose our harvests for want of mutual confidence and security.More David Hume quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Everything in the world is purchased by labor.More David Hume quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
[Rousseau] has not had the precaution to throw any veil over his sentiments; and as he scorns to dissemble his contempt of established opinions, he could not wonder that all the zealots were in arms against him.More David Hume quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
