About this Item

Scattered UNDERLINING IN INK. Else, Near Fine in Wraps: shows only the most minute indications of use: the former owner's name inscribed at the front endpaper; the binding leans slightly, but remains secure. Else flawless. Very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. lvi, 198pp. Edited with an Introduction by Charles W. Hendel. Library of Liberal Arts Series, No. 49. First Edition Thus [1995], Thirty-Fourth Printing. Academic Press Paperback. This is a superb edition of one of the basic works in Western philosophy. Designed to be used by both casual and serious students of philosophy, this edition contains the text of Hume's Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding and a series of other sections that provide background and further directions for studying Hume. Included are an excellent precis of the Treatise of Human Nature, a first rate annotated bibliography concerning works by and about Hume, considerable background material on Hume, and excellent notes to the text. The Essay is a concise and charmingly written presentation of Hume's views of the nature and particularly the limitations of human knowledge. In it Hume presents his basic concepts of human thought, human pattern recognition, and then proceeds to Hume's revolutionary analysis of the problem of induction. Hume exposes our limitations in establishing certain cause and effect relations. Hume's analysis of this problem and its corollaries leads to ultimate skepticism about our ability to know the external world with certainty and undermines much of the basis for religion. Hume presents his ideas in an attractive style that owes much to famous 18th century essayists like Addison. A fundamental and very readable work. First Edition Thus [1995], Thirty-Fourth Printing.
