276 YEARS LATER AND THIS TREATISE “SHINES” FOR POST-MODERNS:
Kant stated that David Hume was the philosopher who woke him up! Hume wrote the “treatise on human nature” when he was only 27 years old and studying in France at the college of La Fleche’. He wrote it from 1734 to 1737. But this is an individual who began serious study at the age of 16. The “Treatise” was considered too abstract and not accessible and therefore was poorly reviewed. But after all of the post-modern research that has gone on, as of late; this treatise is certainly accessible to post-modern enthusiasts. Hume is one of the foundational-figures of post-modern thinking. His work finally receives its “due”. As an empiricist in the full-sense of the word; Hume emphasizes “impressions” over “ideas”. He also emphasizes the transition from “simple” to “complex”. On the unconscious side, “complex-impressions” means “thought-picture” of meaning. On the cognitive side, “complex-ideas” means “system”. Hume is big on the experiential methodology of “annexation & extension”, which we enable through associative work and the logic-of-causation.
The “kindle” brings this masterpiece to every enthusiast for 99 cents. Amazing; and the contents are functional for navigating, the major headings.
I feel every serious thinker should have his work in their library. In digital-form, it is absurd not to own it. Hume is getting attention in the 21st century and deservedly so. You will not be disappointed; enjoy. 5 big stars and 5 big thank you’s for digital availability.

It's well laid out, well organized, and what I expected.There are NO nude pictures of Hume himself but the text is pretty great.

This Kindle version of David Hume's greatest works is outstanding. There is an active TOC for ease of navigation and the links do work. Just as an FYI to Kindle 3 users the TOC may not show up when you click the "go to Start" link. But once there just hit the back button and you will get there.

As regards to the actual work anyone who has dabbled with philosophy even at a cursory level knows that David Hume was one of the "Greats". His "An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding" is a classic and many of us will recall the endless hours we spent arguing about Hume and Locke's views.

For the price and contents this is a steal.

His works are great, but this particular version has no indexed table of contents. The formatting for the Table of Contents is something you'd expect a 10 year-old to do. Navigation is made particularly difficult because of this. If you're a casual reader, these complaints should be insignificant, but if you're planning on using this for academia, and need to navigate swiftly and efficiently, good luck. Table of contents doesn't have page numbers next to sections, so you're going to be continuously pressing the left or right keys in the kindle cloud or tapping the left or right areas on your kindle, or navigating to arbitrary approximations, on the slider on the bottom.

How to review one of the truly great works of British Philosophy? - This is a singular way of reasoning that still resonates.

It isn't necessary to agree with every argument he makes. Just follow his reasoning and his (from our current prejudices, perhaps) his rationalist preconceptions....

It might take a 21st Century reader a few pages to become comfortable with his language and style. But once the reader is "in" he is a wonderfully clear thinker. Not at all abstruse.

This is a review of the Kindle edition of the book, not the book itself.

Despite what another reviewer said, I was disappointed that there is in fact no table of contents and the book is not indexed to be searchable. This makes it incredibly difficult to use. I was willing to pay a $1 instead of getting the free version specifically so that I could navigate it more easily, but since that is not the case, I would not bother with this version.

I'm reading on a Kindle DX. The work-around I found was to open it first with the cloud reader, which doe have a TOC, use that to find the part I want, then "go to" that location number on my Kindle device. Very clumsy, and I don't see why the TOC and searching don't simply work on my Kindle reader.

In this book Hume assumes a true philosophical approach to the most fundamental qualities of human life such as values. Open-minded and analytical approach to issues paves the way for true enlightenment. It demands intellectual acumen and challenges the credibility of some established sources of knowledge.

All of the works of David Hume, at a great price. It's a great addition for a poor man's Kindle collection.
