5.0 out of 5 stars Very good., 23 Oct 2010
A perfect substitute for the more expensive version. Has everything you could need plus extra information and comments on the book. Would recommend it to anyone who needs or wants to read Hume's enquiries. Was exactly what I needed for my University course.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone, 3 Jan 2014

D. Hume is a great philosopher. But, this book is not an easy read. If you are not familiar with Hume, probably it is is not a good start. The language is a bit hard and some sentences are quite lengthy. Although, Peter Millican's introduction provides a good background for the book, yet still the book requires a considerable level of patience and endurance on the reader's side, which should not be too surprising.

I do never mean that you should not buy the book, but i remind that you need to plough through to get a grip on it.
Probably, it would be a good idea to listen a couple of articulate lectures about Hume on you-tube before you plunge into Hume's books. Once you get familiarize yourself with Hume and his main arguments, then the book may make sense.

Fundamental text without which no library of philosophical classics is complete. A good introduction by Prof of Philosophy at Hertford College Oxford and expert on Hume. The text is humane, charitable yet radical in its conclusions... buy it and broaden your horizons.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful simplicity, 8 Mar 2011
What a beautiful book, it clears away all the unnecessary struts of modern philosophy. it also awakens Kant from his dogmatic slumber and sadly, makes him create new struts.

Hume had some interesting thoughts, like: chance is but an event that we do not know the cause of; causation has nothing to do with the world, but is a projection of our own behaviour and becomes a habit formed by induction; an advocation of a 'mitigated' scepticism which does not inspire to certainty, but limits our scientific ambitions to subjects within the scope of experience - and there is so much more.

Please read this book, not because of its vast importance, and because it prepares you for Kant, but because it makes you think.
