Hume on Religion
Hume on Religion
Description
From the Back of the Book

A great deals of the work of David Hume was concerned with Religion, its cause, its effects, and the reasons for religious belief, and his views on the subject are widely spread through his writings. In these lectures an attempt is made to draw together the most powerful elements of his thought about religion and present them as a systematically constructed whole. Hume was not without his blind spots-as emerges particularly in the third lecture- bur nevertheless his case, taken as a whole, amounts to a very serious indictment, not of religion as such, but of most actual religions both past and present.

Foreword

This small volume brings together the three lectures delivered at the Institute by Dr. Edward Craig during August and September 1996 when he was with us as Visiting Professor. David Hume, as we know, is one of the most exiting philosophers of modern West, and has been an abiding influence on the course of European thought for the last 200 years and more. Although Hume's views on problems in the areas of philosophy of mind have fairly widely discussed in the academic philosophy of our country, there has not been as much attention paid to his views on religion. But Hume on religion is just as important and absorbing as Hume on knowledge, or causality or personal identity. Dr. Craig's lectures combine, in their easy-going and charming manner of presentation, subtle and authoritative scholarship with the highest rigour of philosophical argumentation. It will not be surprising at all if this book proves to be the stimulus for the awakening of a serious interest in Hume's writings on religion-an awakening which may be of great value especially in view of the enormous importance that the topic of religion has acquired in the present time, both in India and globally.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
