Dialogues concerning natural religion by David Hume( Book )

312 editions published between 1779 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 4,270 WorldCat member 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 )

221 editions published between 1760 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 2,415 WorldCat member 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 )

205 editions published between 1742 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 2,031 WorldCat member 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 It also includes ten essays that were withdrawn or left unpublished by Hume for various reasons.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

A treatise of human nature; being an attempt to introduce the experimental method of reasoning into moral subjects by David Hume( Book )

111 editions published between 1739 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 356 WorldCat member 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

My own life by David Hume( )

14 editions published between 1927 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 26 WorldCat member 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
