Description

David Hume's Treatise of Human Nature, composed before the author was twenty-eight years old, was published in 1739 and 1740.
In revising the late L.A. Selby-Bigge's edition of Hume's Treatise Professor Nidditch corrected verbal errors and took account of Hume's manuscript amendments. He also supplied the text of the Abstract of the Treatise following the original 1740 edition and provided an apparatus of variant readings.

Review quote

More up-to-date both on general and on political philosophy than anything else I know ... be careful to buy an edition such as the Oxford one which contains at the end the Abstract, which is Hume's own summary and simplification of his main ideas. * Spectator * These 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 *
