This lecture will focus on three aspects of Hume's scepticism surrounding religious belief and practice: the challenge to the traditional arguments for the divine existence; the attack on the reliability of reports of miracles; and his account of the negative effects of institutional Christianity. The extent to which Hume's views animate contemporary forms of atheism will also be explored. Audio podcast, recorded Friday 30 September 2011. Listen to podcast
