David Hume and Immanuel Kent are different schools of thought. The most imperative difference is that Kant had a strong sense of law, duty, and obligation, while Hume does not share these ideals with him. Hume created his first publishing called 'A Treatise of Human Nature,' while he was in college in France. It was published in 1739 in London. He declared with the 'mind' is a collection of mental perceptions and that without having control over your mind, free will does not exist.

He never believed in cause and effect, and he said that they were not sustainable. Hume, on the other hand, was a private teacher, paid by his students. He knew the fields of physics, astronomy, biology, and geology. He formed the n nebular hypothesis, which stated that in the beginning swirling gases condensed into the sun and planets, which is what people believe. Hume's philosophical method was experimental and empirical, while Kant based morality on his theory of reason.
