Rezensionen
'... a book that undergraduates will understand, learn much from, and enjoy reading, and it will be extremely helpful for existing undergraduate courses on the Treatise. The book is such that I hope it will be able not just to fit into current courses on Hume's Treatise, but also help to shape future ones for the better ... this is the best introduction to Hume's Treatise available.' P. J. E. Kail, British Journal for the History of Philosophy
