The Hume Society

The Hume Society invites all persons interested in the philosophy and writings of David Hume to become a member.

Founded in 1974, the Hume Society is an international organization with approximately 600 members around the world. The purpose of the Society is to stimulate scholarship on all aspects of Hume's writings.

The Society holds regular meetings, called "Hume Conferences," at least once every two years, group meetings at the Canadian Philosophical Association meetings and the Eastern, Central and Pacific Division meetings of the American Philosophical Association, and special meetings held either independently or jointly sponsored with another society.

  • The Bulletin of the Hume Society is now available on-line (see below). Volume 28, No. 2 has been mailed to those members who have requested the printed version.

Members of the Hume Society receive an annual subscription to Hume Studies, published twice yearly in April and November. The Bulletin of the Hume Society, which includes information pertaining to activities of the Society, associated organizations, and other items of interest to its members is made available on-line, and in a printed version for those members wishing to receive it in that form.

Membership is $20 (in U.S. dollars) per year for regular members ($100 for 5 years) and $15 per year for students. The Hume Society accepts dues in most major currencies. Checks or money orders should be made out to "Hume Society."  Please see our membership information Website - Join the Hume Society.  See also the Constitution of The Hume Society.
