A Treatise of Human Nature (Barnes & Noble Library of Essential Reading) 3.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 9 reviews.

Hume sets out rather brilliantly the problems of induction. It is a great read for those new to philosophy, it hits on virtually all philosophical cylinders and debunks them all as an absolute. Like existentialism, Humes skepticisms points its finger at humanities preconceived notions and challenges us to think critically upon everything.

This book is terrific. It is the cheapest version of the treatise that I could find, but its great. However, it is fairly abstruse, and I don't recommend it for an inexperienced reader.

Hume's Treatise of Human Nature is chronicled as a must-read for philosophers. It has such a gamut of philosophical quandries and relative understandings about the machinations of the human mind. The language used by this 18th century philosopher is a little difficult at times, though nothing too contrary to make it unreadable.
