"Continuum's Reader's Guides" are clear, concise and accessible introductions to classic works of philosophy. Each book explores the major themes, historical and philosophical context and key passages of a major philosophical text, guiding the reader toward a thorough understanding of often demanding material. Ideal for undergraduate students, the guides provide an essential resource for anyone who needs to get to grips with a philosophical text. David Hume is widely considered to be the greatest British philosopher and his "Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding" is the most frequently studied of all his works - a key text in the study of empiricist thought. This is a hugely important and exciting, yet challenging, piece of philosophical writing. In "Hume's Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding: A Reader's Guide", Allen Bailey and Dan O'Brien explain the philosophical background against which the book was written and the key themes inherent in the text. The book then guides the reader to a clear understanding of the text as a whole, before exploring the reception and influence of this classic philosophical work. This is the ideal companion to study of this most influential and challenging of texts.
