The Great Philosophers: David Hume

 — (PST, UTC-08) — (PST, UTC-08)

San Diego Oasis at Rancho Bernardo, 17170 Bernardo Center Dr., Rancho Bernardo, CA 92128

Join us for another in our series on the Great Philosophers, this time David Hume. Another of the British Empiricists, Scottish philosopher David Hume took Locke’s work to its logical conclusion, and shocked the philosophical world in the process. Known as skepticism, Hume’s philosophy openly questioned the existence of God, a radical stance in the early 18th century. Under Hume’s scalpel, no sacred cow was safe—not science, not reason, not theology, not even the existence of the soul. Join us for an inquiry into the brilliant, beloved, and unorthodox mind of David Hume.

Author of The Seven Stone Path-An Everyday Journey to Wisdom


 

"When life does not find a singer to sing her heart she produces a philosopher to speak her mind." ~ Kahlil Gibran

My book The Seven Stone Path-An Everyday Journey to Wisdom is out now and available everywhere.

And be sure to get the free Workbook HERE!

I am the Philosophy and Humanities Department Chair and a professor of philosophy and humanities at Southwestern College in Chula Vista, California where I have taught world religions, Asian philosophy, world mythology, and ethics for 32 years.

Off campus I speak, write, teach, and sing about a wide range of spiritual and philosophical things.

I write a column for Unity Magazine. I publish a blog called Thinking Through where all my published writing is gathered. I lead guided meditations online on the Insight Timer Meditation app. I have a YouTube channel called Peter Bolland TV where I post videos of some of my talks and songs and more. And I lecture all over town in a wide variety of venues. All of my work is about one thing: shaping the insights of the world's wisdom traditions into tools we can use to enrich our lives. And all that happens when I'm not at Southwestern College in Chula Vista being a philosophy and humanities professor and department chair. 

I also sing, play guitar, write songs, make albums, and perform regularly throughout the San Diego area.


I've been playing music and writing songs my whole life. My first solo album was called Frame, released in 2002. It earned a Best Americana Album nomination at the San Diego Music Awards. Then I had a band called The Coyote Problem from 2002-2010. We won the Best Americana Album prize for both of our albums, Wire in 2005 and California in 2007 at the San Diego Music Awards. Quit while you're ahead, right? I fired myself from my own band so I could focus on all of my other projects, including my solo work. The result? My album Two Pines, available now.Two Pines Album Cover


I am also a session musician playing a wide variety of instruments on other people's albums, things like acoustic and electric guitar, lap steel guitar, Dobro, mandolin, banjo, and harmonica.


But these daydobros I spend most of my off-campus time speaking and leading workshops at a wide variety of venues, (The Chopra Center, The San Diego Vedanta Monastery, San Diego Oasis, The Osher Life Long Learning Institute, Vision: A Center for Spiritual Living, St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral, First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Diego, First United Methodist Church, and many more) about all of the things I've learned through the years about the world's wisdom traditions. If you'd like to come experience one of my many multimedia lecture presentations or long-form classes about the life-changing transformational wisdom of world mythology, comparative religion, and practical philosophy, visit the Calendar page for a complete schedule of upcoming events.
