These new Oxford University Press editions have been meticulously collated from various exatant versions. Each text has an excellent introduction including an overview of Hume's thought and an account of his life and times. Even the difficult, and rarely commented-on, chapters on space and time are elucidated. There are also useful notes on the text and glossary. These scholarly new editions are ideally adapted for a whole range of readers, from beginners to experts. ( Jane O'Grady, Catholic Herald, 4/8/00.)
More up-to-date both on general and on political philosophy than anything else I know ... be careful to buy an edition such as the Oxford one which contains at the end the Abstract, which is Hume's own summary and simplification of his main ideas. ( Spectator)
David Hume (1711-1776) was a Scottish philosopher, economist, and historian, as well as an important figure of Western philosophy and of the Scottish Enlightenment.
