David Hume - The Quarrel with Rousseau / Caroline Binder

Document audiovisuel

Performed by Caroline Binder as part of the 2013 edition of 'My Night with Philosophers'. In 1766, Jean-Jacques Rousseau and David Hume became friends. The friendship, though, quickly fell apart. As Hume sadly noted, its collapse “made [a] great noise all over Europe”, still reaching us today, reminding us of the fragility of reason, even when exercised by the most lucid minds. Rousseau, his mind increasingly undone by years of persecution, came to believe Hume was leading a conspiracy to silence him. Stunned by the mad accusation, Hume published his correspondence with Rousseau to protect his reputation.
