300 Years of Hume

David Hume was a key and fascinating Enlightenment figure. How relevant is he today?

Introduced by Professor Jonathan Wolff of University College London
Chaired by Peter Cave of the Humanist Philosophers

Peter Millican, Professor of Philosophy at Hertford College, Oxford University, will present the 2011 Bentham Lecture marking 300 years since the birth of renowned Scottish philosopher David Hume.

Millican is particularly well known for his work on David Hume, and from 2005 until 2010 was Co-Editor of the journal Hume Studies. He is also an International Correspondence Chess Grandmaster, and has a strong interest in the field of Computing and its links with Philosophy. Recently he has developed a new degree programme at Oxford University, in Computer Science and Philosophy, due to accept its first students in 2012.
