An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding by David Hume One of philosophy's most widely read books and the best introduction to Hume's other works, this 1748 treatise offers an accessible account of the author's provocative notions about the limitations of the mind.
A Treatise of Human Nature by David Hume This enormously influential work employs Locke's empiric principles to construct a theory of knowledge from which to evaluate metaphysical ideas. Numerous thought-provoking considerations of issues include causation, existence, freedom and necessity, and morality.
Principia Ethica by G. E. Moore This volume revolutionized philosophy and forever altered the direction of ethical studies. It clarifies some of moral philosophy's most common confusions, redefines the science's terms, and offers compelling arguments.
The Essence of Christianity by Ludwig Feuerbach Asserting that religion and divinity are outward projections of inner human nature, this 1841 polemic excited immediate international attention and influenced the development of Marxist theory.
How can we know that God exists? Is it possible to find proof of religion's most significant issues? Can we presume that the orderliness of the universe offers evidence of a purposeful creator? David Hume's Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion explores these perennial questions in a thought-provoking and highly readable style. This classic examines its controversial subject in the well-known manner of the Platonic dialogues. Hume's characters discuss God's existence, his divinity and attributes, and the reasons behind his creation of the world. In clear, evocative prose, the debate's participants state and defend their positions, most of which center on the concept currently known as Intelligent Design. Hume's intense skepticism provides ingenious, persuasive refutations of the notion that reason and logic provide support for religious dogma. A work of historical importance as well as of ongoing relevance to modern life, this volume endures as both an inspiring philosophical inquiry and a literary gem.
