Yup. I never studied Hume as quoted in the end: “The Scottish Enlightenment philosopher David Hume famously described reason as a “slave of the passions.” ” But way way long ago, I was into the Eastern Orthodox Church and I gleefully read every English volume of the Philokalia as it arrived at my Barnes & Noble bookstore (I was online but this was pre-Amazon days, hard to fathom). More than one of the “Desert Fathers” wrote about the passions and how they wreck you and how manage them.
