about this story

David hume is a Scottish philosopher, Economist and Historian of the Age of Enlightenment.David's notable works are History of England,Essays,Moral and Political Enquiry,Concerning The Principles of Morals,An Equiry Concerning Human Understanding and lastly A Treatise of Human Nature. He was born on May 7, 1711 in the Edinburgh,Scotland.Hume was the younger son of Joseph hume and David's mother Catherine, a daughter of the Scottish court of session, was in Edinburgh when he was born. In his third year his father died. He entered Edinburgh University when he was about 12 years old and left it at 14 or 15, as was the usual.

Hume argues that an orderly universe does not necessarily prove the existence of God.Those who hold the opposing view claim that God is the creator of the universe and the source of the order and purpose we observe in it which resemble the order and purpose we ourselves create. Hume suggest that the self is just a bundle of perception, like link in chain. And also Hume argues that our concept of the self is a result of our nature habit of attributing unified existence to any collection of associated parts. This belief is natural, but there is no logical support for it.

I chose those pictures because it reminds me of David Hume's experience in life. He did everything to fulfill his goals. He also loves to do essays. He is very smart especially in his philosophies about self. He has proven a lot and so far many people still read his work.
