Hume thought the entire world is constituted of the perceptions from our sense-experience. He had profound doubts about our ability to know anything with certainty; Hume was skeptical of science and vigorously attacked proofs of the existence of God. He thought reason is a slave to our passions yet was optimistic about human nature.

He was a major contributor to contemporary philosophy, and several books have been written about his life and works.

From AudioFile:

Heston narrates, and actors provide vocal characterizations for this introduction to the life and work of Aquinas. Heston's fine voice and air of authority are well suited to this clear, understandable, and interesting script. The examples are easy to follow and will acquaint the listener, not only with the work of Aquinas, but also with certain fundamental concepts in the study of philosophy.
