Sutherland on Hume on Design

Stewart Sutherland has an interview on Hume's Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion at "philosophy bites". He doesn't get across how much Hume's arguments there depend on certain crucial claims made by Cleanthes -- e.g., that there is no argument relevant to the subject except the analogical inference from design -- but this is a difficult topic to express clearly and accurately in a brief space, and he does very well.
