Early Responses to Hume's Metaphysical and Epistemological Writings: Volumes 3 and 4
This major new work is the second part of an important new series, "Early Responses to Hume's Writings, a collection of 18th and 19th-century critical publications on Hume's philosophical, political, economic and historical writings. The themes of the two volumes printed here are the replies to Hume's metaphysical philosophy and epistemology. They contain responses to the "Treatise Books 1 and 2, and the metaphysical and epistemological portions of "An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding and "A Dissertation on the Passions. Topics covered include causality, personal identity, free will and determinism, philosophical scepticism, and the nature of the passions. Among the contributors are William Wishart, Owen Manning, Thomas Reid, James Balfour, Joseph Priestley, Lord Monboddo, Dugald Stewart, Alexander Crombie, Richard Kirwan, Thomas Brown and Lady Mary Shepherd.
Selections are edited, annotated and introduced by Hume scholar James Fieser. Many of the selections have not been reprinted since their original publication and are inaccessible to many scholars worldwide. Fully self-contained, these two volumes will be a major contribution towards understanding Hume and eighteenth-century philosophy and thought.
