Hume: An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding by Stephen Buckle

Book Description

David Hume's An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding, first published in 1748, is a concise statement of Hume's central philosophical positions. It develops an account of human mental functioning which emphasizes the limits of human knowledge and the extent of our reliance on (non-rational) mental habits. It then applies that account to questions of free will and religious knowledge before closing with a defence of moderate scepticism. This volume, which presents a modified version of the definitive 1772 edition of the work, offers helpful annotation for the student reader, together with an introduction that sets this profoundly influential work in its philosophical and historical contexts. The volume also includes a selection of other works by Hume that throw light on both the circumstances of the work's genesis and its key themes and arguments.

Hume's Enlightenment Tract by Stephen Buckle Hume's Enlightenment Tract, Paperback (February 2004)

Contrary to Hume's wishes, 'An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding' has long lived in the shadow of its predecessor 'A Treatise of Human Nature'. Stephen Buckle presents the 'Enquiry' in a fresh light.

Natural Law and the Theory of Property by Stephen Buckle Natural Law and the Theory of Property, Paperback (September 1993)

This treatise provides an historical perspective on the political philosophies of Locke and Hume, amongst others, arguing that there are continuities in the development of 17th-and 18th-century political theory which have often gone unrecognized.
