The Clarendon Hume includes all of Hume's works except The History of England and minor historical writings. This scholarly edition-the first critical edition of Hume's works -provides for each text a historical introduction, a statement of editorial policies and principles, historically oriented annotations, extensive bibliography, and a comprehensive index. Book jacket.

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. Nussbaum, Brown University
