David Hume was a Scottish essayist, historian, philosopher and historian who lived in the 18th century and is famous for having been the pioneer of many path breaking ideas in philosophy including scepticism and empiricism. He had also introduced the concept of naturalism in philosophy. Hume studied at the University of Edinburgh but eventually quit since he did not feel that his professors had anything new to teach him and devoted his time to the study of philosophy. One of his early works, ‘A Treatise of Human Nature’, which sought to learn more about the human nature, made him popular as one of the leading philosophers of the time. Some of his other notable works include ‘Essays, Moral, Political and Literary’, ‘An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding’, ‘Four Dissertations’, ‘The Natural History of Religion’, ‘My Own Life’ and ‘An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals’ among others. Some of his most well known and path breaking ideas include ‘Science of Man’, ‘Bundle Theory’,’ Association of Ideas’, ‘Problem of Causation’, ‘Is-Ought Problem’ and ‘Induction’. It is not a surprise then that Hume is often regarded as being one of the most influential figures in the development of what came to be known as 'Western Thought'.
