David Hume (1711-1776), philosopher, historian, and essayist, is widely considered to be Britain's greatest philosopher.

The Companion presents details of Hume's life, historical and philosophical context, providing students with a comprehensive overview of all the key themes and topics apparent in his work, including his accounts of causal reasoning, scepticism, the soul and the self, action, reason, free will, miracles, natural religion, politics, human nature, women, economics and history, and an account of his reception and enduring influence.

"Tristram Shandy", Laurence Sterne

L'irruption de Tristram Shandy sur la scène littéraire en 1760 fit sensation. Ce livre déconcertant et provocateur, au croisement de la culture classique et de la modernité, suscite depuis deux siècles et demi des réactions ambivalentes. Par sa mise à nu des procédés narratifs, il interroge la littérature et fut souvent pris comme modèle par les tenants de la déconstruction. Mais les vignettes sentimentales eurent aussi leur heure de gloire. Sterne aimait à dire qu'une lettre adressée à " Tristram Shandy, Europe " lui parviendrait, où qu'il se trouve. La parution du texte étalée de 1759 à 1767 le força à renouveler ses trouvailles afin d'entretenir sa réputation d'originalité, toujours d'actualité à l'heure de l'hypertexte et des adaptations postmodernes, des interrogations sur l'héritage du roman et sur l'avenir de la fiction.

Die Naturgeschichte der Religion. Über Aberglaube und Schwärmerei. Über die Unsterblichkeit der Seele. Über Selbstmord

In der Naturgeschichte der Religion (1757) trägt Hume eine Entwicklungsgeschichte des Religiösen vor und ergänzt damit die systematisch orientierte Fragestellung der Dialoge. Über Aberglaube und Schwärmerei ist ausschließlich religionsphilosophisch orientiert. In Über die Unsterblichleit der Seele und Über Selbstmord systematisiert Hume zunächst die jeweils entgegenstehenden Argumente, entkräftet sie dann und hält so nicht nur ein Plädoyer für die moralische wie politisch-rechtliche Legalität des Selbstmords, sondern erweist auch die Unsterblichkeitslehre als philosophisch unbegründet.
