`These new Oxford University Press editions have been meticulously collated from various exatant versions. Each text has an excellent introduction including an overview of Hume's thought and an account of his life and times. Even the difficult, and rarely commented-on, chapters on space and
time are elucidated. There are also useful notes on the text and glossary. These scholarly new editions are ideally adapted for a whole range of readers, from beginners to experts.'
Jane O'Grady, Catholic Herald, 4/8/00.

This edition is a wonderful piece of scholarship, with illuminating commentary and notes. I found this edition to be especially helpful for my students. There is a long introductory essay, comments throughout the text, notes and a glossary.
Even if you have the Selby-Bigge edition, every Hume scholar and serious student should add this to their library. Other than the Selby-Bigge and Oxford editions, avoid all other print editions. (By Oxford editions, I refer to this version and the version also edited by the Nortons under the Clarendon Series label.)
This book surely changes your epistemology.
In this book Hume strongly claims as following.
" All our reasonings concerning causes and effects are derived from nothing but custom;
and that belief is more properly an act of the sensitive, than of the cogitative part of our
And also Hume strongly criticises what is called " induction ".
Even today some statements in this book are quite controversial, and this is a "must read book"
when you study modern philosophy such as Karl Popper or Bertrand Russell.
