David Hume

Author Code: EDHX

Born: May 7, 1711 - Edinburgh, Scotland

Died: Aug. 25, 1776 - Edinburgh, Scotland

Hume's early life was spent in Edinburgh and Bristol. In 1734, he went to France and spent 3 years with the Jesuits at La Fleche. His first work, Treatise of Human Nature was published in 1739 and 1740 (three volumes) which outlines a philosophy that he himself was later to reject as flawed. In 1741 he published Essays Moral and Political, which was successful and this was followed by Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding in 1748 and Enquiry Concerning the Principle of Morals in 1751. His Political Discourses (1752) led to his fame, especially in France. From 1754 to 1761, Hume published four volumes of the History of Great Britain, a work which was to become a standard. Hume was secretary to the British embassy in Paris in 1763 and under-secretary of state in 1767-68. He returned to Edinburgh and spent his remaining years there.

Hume's good friend, Adam Smith, published his biography in 1777 and his nephew arranged for the posthumous publication of Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion in 1779.
