about

David Hume's Treatise of Human Nature, composed before the author was twenty-six years old, was published in 1739 and 1740. Its importance was not generally recognized at the time. For this new edition, Professor Nidditch has corrected the wording of Selby-Bigge's text in a number of places where he found this to diverge from the 1777 edition or where the 1777 edition itself contains error.
