Overview

This unedited first edition of David Hume's "Treatise of Human Nature", with text reproduced actual size, allows scholars worldwide to read the exact same text as its earliest readers who included Alexander Pope, Bishop Butler, Adam Smith and Francis Hutcheson.

Hume scholar, David Raynor has written an introduction which sets the "Treatise" in its intellectual and historical context and details its early reception. It stands out from the crowd of editions of this work as being the only one that Hume saw printed in his lifetime, and its original scarcity should makes this a valuable reference for college and research libraries.

    A thought-provoking book

    Another book I read while getting my BA in Philosophy at UCLA. Hume, and not Freud, is sometimes credited with being the father of modern Psychology. Read this book, and you'll understand why.
