“Hume and Miracle Reports”
|David Hume (1711-1776)|
The Scottish philosopher David Hume (1711-1776) is well known for his criticisms of Christianity, especially his criticisms concerning the credibility of miracle reports, such as those reports having to do with Jesus' resurrection. Hume believed that he discovered an "everlasting check" against belief that a miracle has occurred, a check that will always render belief in miracle reports irrational. In this lecture Dr. van der Breggen examines Hume's argument.
The Philosophy Club is a student group within the University of Manitoba’s Department of Philosophy, organized and run by undergraduate and graduate students currently studying philosophy at the university.
Dr. Hendrik van der Breggen is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Providence University College (Otterburne).
