The story of the greatest of all philosophical friendships "and how
it influenced modern thought David Hume is arguably the most
important philosopher ever to have written in English, but during
his lifetime he was attacked as oethe Great Infidel for his
religious skepticism and deemed unfit to teach the young. In
contrast, Adam Smith, now hailed as the founding father of
capitalism, was a revered professor of moral philosophy.
Remarkably, Hume and Smith were best friends, sharing what Dennis
Rasmussen calls the greatest of all philosophical friendships. The
Infidel and the Professor tells the fascinating story of the close
relationship between these towering Enlightenment thinkers "and how
it influenced their world-changing ideas. It shows that Hume
contributed more to economics "and Smith contributed more to
philosophy "than is generally recognized. The result is a
compelling account of a great friendship that had great
consequences for modern thought.
