David Hume ([hium], nama lahir David Home; 7 Mei 1711 NS (26 April 1711 OS) – 25 Ogos 1776) adalah seorang filsuf, sejarah, ekonomi, dan penulis dari Scotland yang dikenali hari ini untuk sistem falsafah empirisisme, keraguan, dan naturalisnya yang sangat berpengaruh.

Hume mempengaruhi fahaman-fahaman utilitarianisme, positivisme logik, Immanuel Kant, falsafah sains, falsafah analisis awal, sains kognitif, teologi dan pergerakan dan pemikir yang lain. Kant sendiri menyatakan Hume sebagai pencetus pemikiran falsafahnya yang telah membangkitkan dia dari "tidur lena dogmanya".

Hume merupakan filsuf besar pertama dari era moden yang membuat falsafah naturalistks. Falsafah ini sebahagiannya mengandungi penolakan atas prevalensi dalam pembentukan fikiran manusia yang merupakan suatu miniatur dari kesedaran suci; sebuah pernyataan Edward Craig yang dimasukan dalam doktrin 'Image of God'.[4] Doktrin ini dikaitkan dengan kepercayaan dalam kekuatan akal manusia dan penglihatan dalam hakikat, di mana kekuatan tersebut berisi seritikasi Tuhan. Skeptisisme Hume datangnya dari penolakannya atas ideal di dalam'.[5]

  • The History of England (Sometimes referred to as The History of Great Britain) (1754–62) More a category of books than a single work, Hume's history spanned "from the invasion of Julius Caesar to the Revolution of 1688" and went through over 100 editions. Many considered it the standard history of England in its day.

  • "Sister Peg" (1760) Hume claimed to have authored an anonymous political pamphlet satirizing the failure of the British Parliament to create a Scottish militia in 1760. Although the authorship of the work is disputed, Hume wrote Dr. Alexander Carlyle in early 1761 claiming authorship. The readership of the time attributed the work to Adam Ferguson, a friend and associate of Hume's who has been sometimes called "the founder of modern sociology." Some contemporary scholars concur in the judgment that Ferguson, not Hume, was the author of this work.
  • "My Own Life" (1776) Penned in April, shortly before his death, this autobiography was intended for inclusion in a new edition of Essays and Treatises on Several Subjects. It was first published by Adam Smith who claimed that by doing so he had incurred "ten times more abuse than the very violent attack I had made upon the whole commercial system of Great Britain."[9]
  • Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion (1779) Published posthumously by his nephew, David Hume the Younger. Being a discussion among three fictional characters concerning the nature of God, and is an important portrayal of the argument from design. Despite some controversy, most scholars agree that the view of Philo, the most sceptical of the three, comes closest to Hume's own.
