Easter Reading

By random chance, on Friday I picked up a used copy of Hume’s “Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion” at the awesome renaissance Bookshop at the Milwaukee Airport.

I was led there by Susan Nieman’s “Evil in Modern Thought,” about which I may try and write later. That was a challenging book…

And either I’m much smarter now and so more aware of the deep subtleties in books like this, or a whole lot dumber than I was in college when they were easy to read.

One thought on “Easter Reading”

  1. I studied Hume’s “Dialogues” in a philosophy course in the 60’s. (I needed the credit hours). The only thing that kept me awake in class was the guy with Tourette’s sitting beside me.
    All I remember is something about a priori arguments.
    The final conclusion seemed to be that we just don’t know what God is up to.
