Adding this bit in here.
"Upon the whole, I have always considered him [Hume] both in his lifetime and since his death, as approaching as nearly to the idea of a perfectly [[wise]] and [[virtuous]] man, as perhaps the nature of human frailty will permit."
The Catholic philosopher Etienne Gilson noted that Hume's empiricism and skepticism that "the influence of Hume was mainly destructive [because] his skepticism, the ultimate conclusion of a movement initiated by Descartes, ended in a sort of desperate nihilism." Indeed, it was also speculated by George J. Marlin that Hume's empiricism, which attempted to go farther in purity to the subject than either [[John Locke]] or [[George Berkeley]], had reduced everything to pure animal emotions, and had arguably rendered science, mathematically, and history meaningless as a result.<ref></ref>
