Paul Russell on the Riddle of Hume's Treatise

In The Riddle of Hume's Treatise: Skepticism, Naturalism, and Irreligion, Paul Russell argued that Hume's primary aim in his Treatise of Human Nature was to make a major contribution to philosophy religion -- in particular, to provide a devastating critique of natural theology and Christian theism. Nigel Warburton recently discussed Russell's important book with him on the podcast, Philosophy Bites. Here is the link.

Btw, Rico Vitz wrote a very helpful review of the book for NDPR a few years ago (here).
