Dialogues concerning natural religion by David Hume( Book )
442 editions published between 1779 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 4,707 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

An enquiry concerning human understanding by David Hume( Book )
224 editions published between 1760 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 2,423 libraries worldwide
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
Essays, moral, political, and literary by David Hume( Book )
208 editions published between 1742 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 2,032 libraries worldwide
This edition contains the thirty-nine essays included in Essays, Moral, and Literary, that made up Volume I of the 1777 posthumous Essays and Treatises on Several Subjects. It also includes ten essays that were withdrawn or left unpublished by Hume for various reasons. The two most important were deemed too controversial for the religious climate of his time. This revised edition reflects changes based on further comparisons with eighteenth-century texts and an extensive reworking of the index. - Publisher

Enquête sur l'entendement humain by David Hume( Book )
217 editions published between 1748 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,157 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)
Essays on suicide and the immortality of the soul by David Hume( file )
55 editions published between 1783 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 440 libraries worldwide
A treatise of human nature; being an attempt to introduce the experimental method of reasoning into moral subjects by David Hume( Book )
112 editions published between 1739 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 357 libraries worldwide
Following in the paths of Locke and Berkeley, Hume argued that all knowledge starts with sensation. But he rejected Berkeley's appeal to God to explain the stability and persistence of phenomena. Hume argued that the problem of relations between phenomena cannot be solved in empirical terms because we cannot immediately sense all causal relationships, since we sense only individual impressions. Therefore causation must be explained in terms of psychological habits resulting from the association of ideas. It is to this question that he addresses himself here

20 editions published between 1967 and 2001 in English and held by 39 libraries worldwide
My own life by David Hume( file )
14 editions published between 1927 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 26 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
