"Concerning the elements in our make-up that make us reach a conclusion on any subject, and correct that conclusion in the light of thoughts about our intellectual limits and about the situation of our mind when we reached the conclusion, I have proved that they—these very same elements—when carried further and applied to every new judgment on ourselves, must by continually lessening our original conﬁdence eventually reduce it to nothing, utterly subverting all belief and opinion." ---David Hume, Treatise of Human Nature, Bk. I.iv.1 (p. 91).
