"The Blackwell Guide to Hume's Treatise is a very welcome arrival, an antidote to the selective attention from which the Treatise has often suffered. The contributors set out and assess Hume's main doctrines and arguments across the whole Treatise, bringing out links between its different parts, and situating the work in its biographical and philosophical context. The result is an excellent introduction to one of the major works of western philosophy." Stephen Buckle, Australian Catholic University

"This is an excellent addition to an excellent series. Saul Traiger has solicited an impressive collection of original essays covering all the parts of Hume's most important, but also most baffling, work. The authors include most of the world's leading Hume scholars. Their work is authoritative, but is also very clearly presented, so that the volume will be accessible to college students as well useful for expert philosophers. Highly recommended!" Vere Chappell, University of Massachusetts
