Prometheus Books (1751)
Shortly before his death, David Hume declared his Enquiry concerning the Principles of Morals (1751) to be the best of his many writings. In this highly influential work, Hume sets out his theory of justice and benevolence and the other virtues, and argues that morality is founded on the natural feelings or sentiments of humankind. The text printed in this edition is the Clarendon critical edition of Hume's works. This volume also includes detailed explanatory notes on the text, a glossary of terms, a full list of references, and a section of supplementary readings.
