Hume's philosophical thought presented in Hume's incredibly clear and precise prose style. What's to enjoy more?

And the price was right.

I recently read Outlines of Scepticism by Sextus Empiricus in order to gain a better understanding of the origins of modern skepticism. When I read Hume it felt like I was reading a direct sequel to Sextus' classic (written around 200 AD). Hume has some harsh words about "superstition" but overall here he is more concerned with exploring "how we know things" rather than debunking any particular mythology or religion. If you want to challenge your own thought-life give Hume a try. As others have stated, this book is quite accessible.

They say that your undergraduate is about understanding how philosophers think, and not how you can contribute to the philosophy field. I feel as though this book gives you a great foundation on the basis of Empiricism, and can lead to other modern thinkers. I recommend this book to anyone who wants an enjoyable and classic read.

Hume approached many areas -- morals, politics, religion, etc. -- with a unique and refreshing perspective. You will enjoy his way of thought.
