Quote for the Day – Hume on Common Sense and Philosophy

“Whatever has the air of paradox, and is contrary to the first and most unprejudiced notions of mankind, is often greedily embraced by philosophers, as shewing the superiority of their science, which coued discover opinions so remote from vulgar conception.”

~David Hume, A Treatise of Human Nature
