This chapter examines the parallel between Hume's treatment of religious belief and the external world belief. Different kinds of threat to realism are considered, and it is argued that there is a crucial difference in Hume's treatment of the two topics. This difference allows us to read Hume as a realist about the external world, but a non-realist about religion.
