The Cambridge companion to Hume by David Fate Norton( Book )

70 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and Hungarian and held by 2,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although best known for his contributions to the theory of knowledge, metaphysics, and philosophy of religion, Hume also influenced developments in the philosophy of mind, psychology, ethics, political and economic theory, political and social history, and aesthetic theory. The fifteen essays in this volume address all aspects of Hume's thought. The picture of him that emerges is that of a thinker who, though often critical to the point of scepticism, was nonetheless able to build on that scepticism a constructive, viable, and profoundly important view of the world. Also included in this volume are Hume's two brief autobiographies and a bibliography suited to those beginning their study of Hume. This second edition of one our most popular Companions includes six new essays and a new introduction, and the remaining essays have all been updated or revised

The David Hume library by David Fate Norton( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Hume, well-known as a philosophy and historian, was also an avid reader and collector of books. Unfortunately, no catalogue of his library survives. The Nortons have traced the path of Hume's books to his brother and sister, then to his nephew, David Hume the younger (later Baron Hume), and finally to Thomas Stevenson, an Edinburgh bookseller. Working from manuscript sources, including an 1840 catalogue of Baron Hume's library, as well as letters to Hume, the authors identify several hundred titles that belonged, or probably belonged, to Hume. Included among these are corrected copies of Hume's own works; a wide range of items presented to him by such friends or acquaintances as Buffon, Burke, D'Alembert, Diderot, Gibbon, D'Hollbach, Price, Priestley, Rousseau, Adam Smith, and Horace Walpole; and many now obscure works that may have helped to form the views of one of Britain's most important writers."--

Claude Buffier and Thomas Reid, two common sense philosophers by Louise Marcil-Lacoste( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All too often it is said that common-sense philosophers fail to justify their appeal to common sense as a philosophical standard, and that they merely repeat one another in the glorification of philosophical trivialities. This book challenges these and other widespread assumptions about common-sense philosophers and provides a major reassessment of an influential segment of the history of ideas
