The physical substance of a person disperses after death and loses its identity as a person. Given the lack of knowledge about the natural world at the time these concepts were first formed, it is not surprising these ancient peoples reached for such ephemeral metaphors as mind, breath, and spirit. On important religious ideas, including religious diversity, concepts of God/Ultimate Reality, arguments for and against the existence of God, problems of evil, science and faith, religious experience, the self, death and the afterlife. Hume's It is an innovative work that brings together threads from philosophy, psychology, and history to provide a naturalistic account of how the various world religions came about. Aug 26, 2012 - Before going in depth about some of the social and cultural changes that took place in the Middle Ages, however, one must understand the effect of an extremely pertinent aspect of those times, religion: times accepted their social roles and thought they could not work their way up the social ladder because they believed it was God's will for them to only execute their given roles; this mindset can give one an idea of the strong influence religion had in people's lives.

Dec 24, 2013 - Hume's Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding re-emphasizes several of the challenges from the Treatise, but also includes a section against miracles and a section against the fruitfulness of theology. When the body dies, the soul lives on eternally in the world of ideas. Nevertheless, there is another widespread view in these religions that contradicts the doctrine of bodily resurrection: namely that at death the soul separates from the body and quickly attains its station in the afterlife.
