Abstract
What is now known as Hume’s first Enquiry was first published in 1748, by Andrew Millar of the Strand, London, under the title Philosophical Essays Concerning Human Understanding . A second edition appeared in 1750, and this was reprinted in 1751 and 1753, the latter in the form of volume II of Hume’s four volume Essays and Treatises on Several Subjects . This arrangement was retained in the third edition of 1756, at which point volume II was the only one of the four to be reissued. The next edition of the Essays and Treatises , in 1758, combined the constituent works into a single volume, and here Hume permanently changed the title of his Philosophical Essays to An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding . In the four volume 1760 and 1770 editions of the Essays and Treatises , the Enquiry appeared in volume III with A Dissertation on the Passions . In the two volume editions of 1764, 1767, 1768, 1772, and 1777, it appeared at the beginning of volume II, followed in order by A Dissertation on the Passions , An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals , and The Natural History of Religion.
