This review is from: An Enquiry concerning Human Understanding (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
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.
