  Carolyn Sweers  

“The Enlightened Mr. Hume” Scottish philosopher David Hume was one of the key figures in what is called the Enlightenment. Hume said we should take a look at what we really know and how we know it rather than relying on unsubstantiated theories about God, the soul or the origin of morality. In this lecture, excerpts from Hume's writings present his case. Carolyn Sweers earned a master’s degree in philosophy from Boston University and for 25 years taught philosophy and history courses at New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois. After retiring in 1994, she taught older adult education programs in the Chicago area and has been teaching for Osher over the past three years.
