Someone had to say it....

Reading Stephen Buckle's "Hume's Biography and Hume's Philosophy" in the March 1999 Australasian Journal of Philosophy, I see that Buckle refers to Ernest Mossner's biography of Hume (which is basically the standard biographical work) as "somewhat gushy" (p. 12). Finally, someone has said it; for, with all due respect for Brother Mossner's Hagiography of Saint David, it is somewhat gushy.
