Hume was the youngest son of Joseph Hume, the laird or lord of modest circumstances of Ninewells, a small estate adjoining the village of Chirnside, about nine miles from Berwick-upon-Tweed on the Scottish side of the border. David’s mother, Catherine, a daughter of Sir David Falconer, President of the Scottish Sessional Court, was in Edinburgh when he was born. In his third year, his father died. He entered the University of Edinburgh around the age of 12 and left at the age of 14 or 15, as was usual then. Pressed a little later to study law (in the family tradition on both sides), he found it unpleasant and rather read voraciously in the larger sphere of letters. Due to the intensity and excitement of his intellectual discovery, he suffered a nervous breakdown in 1729, from which he took a few years to recover.

Hume conceived of philosophy as the inductive experimental science of human nature. Taking as a model the scientific method of the English physicist Sir Isaac Newton and drawing on the epistemology of the English philosopher John Locke, Hume attempted to describe how the mind works to acquire what is called knowledge. He concludes that no theory of reality is possible; there can be no knowledge of anything beyond experience. Despite the lasting impact of his theory of knowledge, Hume seems to have seen himself primarily as a moralist.
