I need your help. I've created a petition on the topic of American historical figures statues being torn down, and how much of a disgrace it is. Preserve our history and sign the petition. Clickable link is in my bio!
Also, I never use hashtags, so this is desperate?? Help??
David Hume was one of the world’s greatest philosophers. One of his most famous works deals with superstition, with Hume arguing that philosophical reason can act as an ‘antidote’ to superstitious thinking and religious belief.
Hume's work on political philosophy, history and logic have influenced the greatest theories of humankind, the most notable being his friend whose statue you'd find across the Royal mile - Adam Smith. People like Charles Darwin , John Locke, Immanuel Kant, Bertrand Russell , Friedreich Hayek and many other stalwarts of history , politics and economics have drawn from Hume's work .
If you see the statue he wears a loose Greek robe and has the ten commandments under his left feet signifying his rejection of god's decree for man. The blank tablet represents the human mind and its ability to think, reason and learn.However, sculptor, Sandy Stoddar, deliberately stuck Hume’s big toe out over the plinth so that the public would be tempted to touch it.
Ironically this custom is famous with rubbing of toe of St Peter in the Vatican. Today Philosophy students come to rub Hume's toe for good luck . It is quite obvious , passionate defender of rationality and a scourge of the superstitious wouldn't have approved of this blind faith if anything at all.
Human kind can stand and defend very little of rationality and reason because faith is our refuge.
No, I didn't touch the toe. Let's leave it at that.
