Hume’s Enquiry: Expanded and Explained includes the entire classical text of the Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding in bold font, a running commentary blended seamlessly into the text in regular font and analytic summaries of each section. The commentary is like a professor on hand to guide the reader through every line of the daunting prose and every move in the intricate argumentation. The unique design helps students learn how to read and engage with one of modern philosophy's most important and exciting classics.
"This is a highly innovative and exciting approach to one of the great classics of philosophy. Primarily aimed at students, I strongly suspect that experienced scholars will benefit greatly from seeing Hume through the fresh lens of this volume."
--Michael Ruse, Florida State University
"In the Middle Ages philosophy was often conducted via commentaries on what in the day were considered the great philosophical works. This had the benefit of being immensely useful for students seeking an initial understanding, but also for the established scholars seeking to deepen their understanding of the texts familiar to them. It is extremely refreshing to see this approach – with the concomitant advantages above – deftly re-visited, illuminating this philosophical classic."
