Hume: Philosophy in an Hour
Format: Kindle Edition|Change
Price:£0.99

on 11 September 2015
The book doesn't contain a great deal of detail on his ideas ( what did I expect). This is ideal A level philosophy material. It would also suit anyone new to philosophy who needs an accessible straightforward account .... It was just very unsatisfying for my personal level of reading and this type of short account is freely available on the internet so why pay for it? They say to never judge a book by it's cover or title. I should have paid more attention to what I was buying!

This short work provides an excellent introduction to the life, times, and wisdom of the great Scottish thinker. I have tried to read Hume in the original but find it beyond me. For the interested layman, Strathern's production may be all you need, providing overview and detail in equal measure thereby enhancing a reader's learning experience. I ask for no more.

Most of these books are the same, they are a good intro to the person and an overview of the work, but no analysis of detail on any of the works particularly, a good enough introduction if you don't know who Hume is.

Certainly readable within an hour, so no false advertising there. Simple explanation of his life and ideas detailed in an interesting way. Opens you up to Hume; real understanding will require further reading. Good starter.
