This text is part of the "Routledge Philosophy Guidebooks" series, which aims to introduce students to the classic works of philosophy. Each guidebook considers a major philosopher and a key area of their philosophy by focusing upon an important text and situating the philosopher and their work in a historical context, considering the text in question and assessing the philosopher's contribution to contemporary thought. David Hume was the most important British philosopher of the 18th century. His "Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion" is a classic text in the philosophy of religion. This book introduces and asseses Hume's life and the background to "Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion", examines the ideas and text of "Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion", and explores Hume's continuing importance to philosophy.
