Named in memory of the famous British philosopher David Hume (1711-1776). He started to study law but found it distasteful. In 1744 he became a candidate for the chair of moral philosophy at Edinburgh, but he was not successful, since his opponents found evidence for heresy and even atheism in his Treatise of Human Nature. In 1761 the Vatican put his writings on the Index. Hume regarded himself chiefly as a moralist: "It is our nature to find certain human qualities intrinsically good. However, we can not explain this, since any attempt would take us into the vacuum of metaphysics".
