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.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
