Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"....This volume moves beyond the two-dimensional description of Hume as the destructive skeptic in order to highlight the constructive and innovative dimensions of Hume's thought.... the essays offer a topical focus with a progression that is modeled after Hume's own development of thought.... a rich contextualization for the reader to gain a fuller sense of Hume's thoughts and influence in numerous arenas that have a lasting significance today."
—Jennifer Powell McNutt, Wheaton College, Illinois
