Abstract

The “David Hume” purpose of this article is not the philosopher but the historian and political thinker. Intellectual concerned about the historical evolution of societies that outlines in their historical and essays, a theory of the process of civilization built with materials from a liberal and skeptical Enlightenment. This theory was not advanced by Hume systematically, so this article is to make explicit the underlying unity to the fragmented political, social and economic considerations Scottish thinker. Our thesis is that these discussions were due to a stabilizing purpose: to settle in Britain the civilizing process after the Revolution of 1688 ending the factional disputes and contributing to the creation of a prudent and moderate citizens, far from any kind of extremism.
