"Hume argues that the science of man--the study of human nature--is the only solid foundation for the other sciences. The sciences of mathematics, natural philosophy, and natural religion are dependent on the knowledge of man, and this dependence seen even more clearly in the other sciences (logic, morals, criticism, and politics) whose connection with human nature is more close and intimate. The only expedient from which we can hope for success in our philosophical researches is to march up directly to human nature itself; which once being masters of, we may every where else hope for an easy victory. In pretending therefore to explain the principles of human nature, we in effect propose a complete system of the sciences, built on a foundation almost entirely new, and the only one upon which they can stand with any security. The only solid foundation we can give to this science itself must be laid on experience and observation. We must glean up our experiments in this science from a cautious observation of human life, and take them as they appear in the common course of the world, by men's behavior in company, in affairs, and in their pleasures. Where experiments of this kind are judiciously collected and compared, we may hope to establish on them a science, which will not be inferior in certainty, and will be much superior in utility to any other of human comprehension"--Introduction.

An Enquiry concerning the Principles of Morals, first published in 1751, was the third of David Hume's major philosophical treatises. Hume's aim in this elegant and lucid work was to present in an accessible way his theory of the foundation of morality in human nature, a theory which had developed significantly since he first addressed the subject in A Treatise of Human Nature (1739-40). He considered this Enquiry to be 'of all my writings, historical, philosophical, or literary, incomparably the best'
