Good lecture on Hume and miracles

I went to a lecture yesterday given by Dr. Tim McGrew, head of the department of philosophy at Western Michigan University, on David Hume's argument against miracles. It was very well done! Dr. McGrew put Hume's writing in its context, demonstrated some weaknesses in Hume's argument, and showed that vigorous responses were given to Hume almost at once.
