One of the classics,
This review is from: A Treatise of Human Nature: Being an Attempt to Introduce the Experimental Method of Reasoning into Moral Subjects (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
This is one of the classic works of western philosophy. I would do this treatise no justice by trying to summarise Hume's work, much better to read it for yourself. But I may add that it is well written, fairly understandable and at points almost witty. For the readers making their first inroads into philosophy, this may not be a bad place to start.
