David Hume
(1784-1859)
"The Untroubled Sceptic"


"I found that the moral philosophy transmitted to us by Antiquity,
laboured under the same inconvenience that has been found in their
natural philosophy, of being entirely hypothetical, and depending
upon more invention than experience. Every one consulted his fancy
in erecting schemes of virtue and of happiness, without regarding
human nature, upon which every moral conclusion must depend."1
