An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding is a book by the Scottish empiricist philosopher David Hume. This book has proven highly influential, both in the years that would immediately follow and today. Immanuel Kant points to it as the book which woke him from his self-described "dogmatic slumber". The argument of the Enquiry proceeds by a series of incremental steps, separated into chapters which logically succeed one another. After expounding his epistemology, Hume explains how to apply his principles to specific topics. I. Of the Different Species of Philosophy II. Of the Origin of Ideas III. Of the Association of Ideas IV. Sceptical Doubts Concerning the Operations of the Understanding V. Sceptical Solution of these Doubts VI. Of Probability VII. Of the Idea of Necessary Connexion VIII. Of Liberty and Necessity IX. Of the Reason of Animals X. Of Miracles XI. Of a Particular Providence and of a Future State XII. Of the Academical or Sceptical Philosophy

The Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding is a shortened and simplified version of Hume's masterpiece A Treatise of Human Nature. It sought to reach a wider audience, and to dispel some of the virulent criticism addressed toward the former book. In it, Hume explains his theory of epistemology, and argues against other current theories, including those of John Locke, George Berkeley, and Nicolas Malebranche...

Disappointed by the public reception to "A Treatise of Human Nature," published anonymously between 1739 and 1740, David Hume decided to produce a shorter more polemic version of that work nearly ten years later. That revision, which was published in 1748, would be entitled "An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding." Dispensing with much of the extraneous material from the "Treatise," Hume focuses on his more vital propositions in the "Enquiry." Proceeding in incremental steps Hume discusses the following concepts: "The Different Species of Philosophy," "The Origin of Ideas," "The Association of Ideas," "Sceptical Doubts Concerning the Operations of the Understanding," "Sceptical Solution of These Doubts," "Probability," "The Idea of Necessary Connection," "Liberty and Necessity," "The Reason of Animals," "Miracles," "Of a Particular Providence and of a Future State," and "The Academical or Sceptical Philosophy." Widely considered a classic of modern philosophical literature, "An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding" is Hume's theory of knowledge which would influence thinkers both in his time and for generations to come. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper and includes an introduction by L. A. Selby-Bigge.
