Hume, David (1711-1776), by Jan Narveson, David Trenchard, The Encyclopedia of Libertarianism, 15 Aug 2008
Biographical essay
"David Hume, a Scottish philosopher, was one of the most highly regarded thinkers who wrote in the English language. Although his contributions to the theory of knowledge as well as to moral and political philosophy form the basis of this high opinion, he also was the author of a highly acclaimed History of England in six volumes and many essays on various literary, moral, and political topics. ... However, Hume's insistence that private property is essential to society in fact has little to do with conservatism as such, but is, in fact, fundamentally libertarian."
