Nowhere in The Dialogues does Hume deal with his readers at once. hence, it may possibly no longer instantly be transparent even if Hume is expressing his personal critiques via considered one of his characters or is utilizing a personality to symbolize a place he needs to check, maybe to reject. The Dialogues is a competition, and Hume, via no longer conversing at once in his personal voice, leaves it-officially, at least-to his readers to pass judgement on who, if somebody, wins.
