Hume reduced philosophy to ruins, denying the existence of everything except our actual perceptions themselves. The world is nothing more than part of my consciousness. Yet we know the world remains, and we go on as before. What Hume expressed was the status of our knowledge about the world – a world in which neither religion nor science is certain.

Hume The Scottish Phiosopher Who Changed the World
A good wee outline of a philosopher who made a profound difference to the world. The text is witty and informative. The salient points of the Hume's philosophy are covered as well as entertaining biographical episodes.

Hume as a person.
Excellent narrator, written with humour. Gives insight to Hume's personal life, with a bit of comedic exaggeration perhaps.
Quite easy to listen, probably more enjoyable for those who've already familiarised themselves with Hume's work.
