David Hume was a Scottish historian, philosopher, and economist in the row with the greatest thinkers Adam Smith, John Stuart Mill, John Keynes, John Locke, and Alfred Marshall.  Their thoughts had strong influence on building the foundation of the United States and its endeavor of open society.

David Hume’s A Treatise of Human Nature in 1739 examined the psychological basis of human nature. Hume concluded that desire rather than reason governed human behavior. His theory had strong influence on William James’s work, one of the greatest psychologists trained at Harvard.

Hume's compatibilist theory of Free Will also proved extremely influential on subsequent moral philosophy.

Hume’s work also produced great influence on utilitarianism, logical positivism, the philosophy of science, early analytic philosophy, and cognitive philosophy.

David Hume’ influence has been felt in nearly every field of the humanities and social sciences.

The reasoning by David Hume still remains as relevant today as it was then.   This book is one of the most important ones about the deepest thoughts of human nature, logic and their economic impact on social systems by David Hume, one of the greatest thinkers of modern economics and logic on the planet.
