Who Was David Hume? by Anthony Gottlieb | The New York Review of Books
"David Hume, who died in his native Edinburgh in 1776, has become something of a hero to academic philosophers. In 2009, he won first place in a large international poll of professors and graduate students who were asked to name the dead thinker with whom they most identified. The runners-up in this peculiar race were Aristotle and Kant. Hume beat them by a comfortable margin. Socrates only just made the top twenty."

Ship of Fools: Features
Ship of Fools reviews Dawkins' "The God Delusion". Likes him slagging the fundies, doesn't like over-generalising that all religion is evil.
