Dialogues concerning natural religion by David Hume( Book )

301 editions published between 1779 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 4,241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Hume is the greatest and also one of the most provocative philosophers to have written in the English language. His sceptical accounts of the causes and consequences of religious belief are expressed most powerfully in the Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion and The Natural History of Religion. The Dialogues ask if belief in God can be inferred from the nature of the universe or whether it is even consistent with what we know about the universe. The Natural History of Religion investigates the origins of belief, and follows its development from harmless polytheism to dogmatic monotheism. Together they constitute the most formidable attack upon the rationality of religious belief ever mounted by a philosopher. This edition also includes Section XI of The Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding and a letter concerning the Dialogues as well as a particularly helpful critical apparatus and abstracts of the main texts

Now one of the most widely read works in philosophy, David Hume's An Enquiry concerning Human Understanding (1748) introduced his philosophy to a broad educated readership. In it he gives an elegant and accessible presentation of strikingly original and challenging views about the limited powers of human understanding, the attractions of skepticism, the compatibility of free will and determinism, and weaknesses in the foundations of religion. In this volume, an authoritative new version of the text is enhanced by detailed explanatory notes, a glossary of terms, a full list of references, and a section of supplementary readings
Untersuchung über den menschlichen Verstand by David Hume( Book )

230 editions published between 1748 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Humes "Untersuchung" ist ein Haupttext der empiristischen Erkenntnistheorie, der vor allem für Kants kritische Philosophie folgenreich wurde. In der "Studienbibliothek" (siehe auch C. Horn u.a. in dieser Nr.) liegt der Text als leicht überarbeitete Version der maßgeblichen Richter-Übersetzung (1907) und in deren Paginierung bzw. Abschnittzählung vor; vorsorglich werden die Schlüsselbegriffe Humes in Klammern auf Englisch wiedergegeben. Die umfangreiche Kommentierung stammt von dem Jenaer Ästhetik-Professor Lambert Wiesing (zuletzt ID 10/97), der nach einer kurzen Inhaltsangabe die Entstehungsgeschichte des Textes nachzeichnet. Der eigentliche Kommentar verfolgt abschnittweise Humes Gedankengang, der immer wieder im Kontext der philosophischen Tradition beleuchtet und in seinen Unklarheiten seziert wird. Reihenüblich folgen Stellenerklärungen, Glossar und kurze Rezeptionsgeschichte. Den Abschluss machen ein Überblick zum aktuellen Stand der Hume-Forschung und eine kommentierte Auswahlbiobliografie. Der Kommentar stellt Ansprüche an den Leser und eignet sich nur bedingt für Einsteiger. Trotzdem: (2)

My own life by David Hume( )

13 editions published between 1927 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a final, short summary of his life and works, David Hume wrote My Own Life as he suffered from gastrointestinal issues that ultimately killed him. Despite his bleak prognosis, Hume remains lighthearted and inspirational throughout. He discusses his life growing up, his family relationships, and his desire to constantly improve his works and his reputation as an author. He confesses, "I have suffered very little pain from my disorder; and what is more strange, have ... never suffered a moment's abatement of my spirits; insomuch that were I to name the period of my life which I should most choose to pass over again, I might be tempted to point to this later period." This short biography ends with a series of letters from Hume's close friend and fellow author Adam Smith to their publisher William Strahan, recounting Hume's death and giving a stirring eulogy in honor of their friend
