The Clarendon Edition of the Works of David Hume RSS

about Hume: David Hume (1711-1776) is one of the greatest of philosophers. Today he probably ranks highest of all British philosophers in terms of influence and philosophical standing. His philosophical work ranges across morals, the mind, metaphysics, epistemology, and aesthetics; he had broad interests not only in philosophy as it is now conceived but in history, politics, economics, religion, and the arts. He was a master of English prose.
about the Clarendon Hume Edition:

The Clarendon Hume will include all of his works except his History of England and minor historical writings; it will be the only thorough critical edition, and will provide a far more extensive scholarly treatment than any previous editions. This edition (which has been in preparation since the 1970s) offers authoritative annotation, bibliographical information, and indexes, and draws upon the major advances in textual scholarship that have been made since the publication of earlier editions--advances both in the understanding of editorial principle and practice and in knowledge of the history of Hume's own texts.

The Edition will comprise:

Vols. 1 and 2: A Treatise of Human Nature, edited by D. F. Norton

Vol. 3: An Enquiry concerning Human Understanding, edited by T. L. Beauchamp

Vol. 4: An Enquiry concerning the Principles of Morals, edited by T. L. Beauchamp

Vol. 5: The Natural History of Religion and the Dissertation on the Passions

Vols. 6 and 7: Essays

Vol. 8: Dialogues concerning Natural Religion and other posthumous publications, edited by M. A. Stewart
