Thank you so much for the opportunity to get to meet and talk with several of you at the Religious Studies New Years gathering. It was great to put some faces to names. As always, I am here to accept any suggestions for books you think would benefit the library's Religious Studies collection. I ask that you submit your order requests by Friday, March 15th.

David Hume on Religion and Literature
Hume's contemporary reputation was greatly affected by fear of his sceptical religious views. His Four Dissertations (1757) cover both religion and the problems of literary taste that occupied such other Scots as Smith, Kames and Blair. Hume's posthumous Dialogues concerning Natural Religion, was first published in 1779: this copy of the second edition (also 1779) is a recent purchase to fill this gap in the collection.
