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
Dialogues concerning natural religion by David Hume( Book )
114 editions published between 1779 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 4,276 libraries worldwide
How can we know that God exists? Is it possible to find proof of religion's most significant issues? Can we presume that the orderliness of the universe offers evidence of a purposeful creator? In this book, David Hume explores these perennial questions. This classic examines its controversial subject in the well-known manner of the Platonic dialogues. Hume's characters discuss God's existence, his divinity and attributes, and the reasons behind his creation of the world.--[book cover]
