David Hume was a complex man. Erasing his name is too simplistic a gesture | Kenan Malik
Taking the philosopher’s name off a tower ignores history and is no help to the present“Learn, Mr Hume, to prize the blessings of Liberty and Education, for… had you been born and bred a slave, your Genius, whatever you may think of it, would never have been heard of.”So wrote the members of the 18th-century Aberdeen Philosophical Society, one of the leading debating salons in Scotland, in response to an essay by the presiding genius of the Scottish Enlightenment, David Hume. In “Of National Characters”, first published in 1748, Hume had explored the reasons for national differences. Continue reading...

Express yourself: why Madonna wants to tell her own life story
The material girl is to write and direct her own biopic, but fans will want to see the struggles as well as the triumphs“It’s essential to share the rollercoaster ride of my life with my voice and my vision,” Madonna said when it was announced by Universal Pictures that she will be co-writing and directing a biopic about her life. The star was annoyed back in 2017 when she heard that Blonde Ambition, a screenplay about her early years in New York, was in development. “Nobody knows what I know and what I have seen,” she posted on Instagram. “Only I can tell my story.”Now just turned 62, she is feeling reflective and ready to tell it, with a promising team of women behind her. Producer Amy Pascal for instance, whose credits include Oscar-nominated The Post and Little Women, and Donna Langley, chairperson of Universal Pictures and a key mentor for women in the film industry, who says that the biopic will present “the unvarnished story” of Madonna’s struggle as an artist trying to survive in a man’s world.
