In 2013, Gil Delannoi asked in the periodical Commentaire if, in the end, David Hume was perhaps the “greatest philosopher of the Enlightenment” despite his less famous posterity than that of Voltaire or Rousseau. Delannoi reminds us of the novelty of Hume’s thought regarding epistemology, ethics, history, and philosophical anthropology (from his analysis of the passions to that of religion). The name of Hume evokes less emotional reaction than that of his contemporaries who often wrote with greater pathos. Nonetheless, Hume’s thought woke Kant from his “dogmatic slumber” and has never ceased, since that time, to inspire others; some even find in Hume the source of exciting areas of study such as the cognitive sciences (Fodor). The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy does not hesitate to make of Hume the most important philosopher to have written in English, and a survey by PhilPapers claimed him as the thinker with whom today’s philosophers identify the most. This illustrates the degree to which his relevance remains permanent.

The Faculty of Philosophy of Dominican University College and the Department of Philosophy of the University of Ottawa continue their collaboration once again in the series “…Today”. After Malebranche, Rousseau, and Spinoza, the series turns to the works of Hume and their various interpretations up to the present day.
