1 Citation (SciVal)


This is an imaginary dialogue between David ('Dave') Hume and his dissertation supervisor, 'Prof', and, later, between Professor Hume and a young scholar from the United States. The conversations, which centre on the issue of 'causation', are taking place apparently in our time, but Newton and Wittgenstein are alive and the Theory of Relativity has not yet been formulated.
