About the Author:

David Hume was an eighteenth-century Scottish philosopher, historian, and essayist, and the author of A Treatise of Human Nature, considered by many to be one of the most important philosophical works ever published.

Hume attended the University of Edinburgh at an early age and considered a career in law before deciding that the pursuit of knowledge was his true calling. Hume s writings on rationalism and empiricism, free will, determinism, and the existence of God would be enormously influential on contemporaries such as Adam Smith, as well as the philosophers like Schopenhauer, John Stuart Mill, and Karl Popper, who succeeded him. Hume died in 1776.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 308 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.6in.Excerpt from Humes Political DiscoursesRegretting the meagre records of the life of Adam Smith, the Right Hon. R. B. Haldane, M. P. , remarks: - We think of him, in the main, and we think of him rightly, as the bosom friend of David Hume (b. 1711, d. 1777). Naturally, incidents in the life of a philosopher are neither numerous nor stirring. It is unreasonable to expect them, and such stories as are handed down regarding great thinkers are best not to be accepted unreservedly. I leave Hume, therefore, to present his own picture as drawn in My own Life - the picture he wished posterity to have - which consequently follows this introduction, and is itself followed by Adam Smiths celebrated letter to Mr. Strahan, Humes publisher, giving an account of Humes death. It is chiefly as a political economist that Hume concerns us here, as it is in the Political Discourses, first published in 1752, his economic principles are set forth. What the reader may expect to find in these Discourses I prefer to let writers of renown tell. Thus Lord Brougham -Of the Political Discourses it would be difficult to speak in terms of too great commendation.
