Editorial Reviews

Review

A splendid edition. Schneewind's illuminating introduction succinctly situates the Enquiry in its historical context, clarifying its relationship to Calvinism, to Newtonian science, and to earlier moral philosophers, and providing a persuasive account of Hume's ethical naturalism. --Martha C.

It was pretty standard. Feel like it is kind of over charged.
Consider getting an e-book for it. My professor just did not let me

Interested in books by Hackett, a bit worn, interesting material with some historical relevance to the study of Ethics... would use in a classroom setting.
