Dialogues and Natural History of Religion (Oxford World's Classics)

Dialogues and Natural History of Religion (Oxford World's Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David Hume is one of the most provocative philosophers to have written in English. His Dialogues ask if a belief in God can be inferred from what is known of the universe, or whether such a belief is even consistent with such knowledge. The Natural History of Religion investigates the origins of belief, and follows its development from polytheism to dogmatic monotheism. Together, these works constitute the most formidable attack upon religious belief ever mounted by a philosopher.

This new edition includes Section XI of The Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding and a letter by Hume in which he discusses Dialogues.

Synopsis:

These texts ask if belief in God can be inferred from the nature of the universe or whether it is even consistent with what we know about the universe. They investigate the origins of belief, and follow its development from harmless polytheism to dogmatic monotheism.
