  1. Society and Sentiment: Genres of Historical Writing in Britain, 1740–1820. [REVIEW]Mark G. Spencer - 2001 - Hume Studies 27 (1):186-190.
    This gracefully written and ably-researched book explores historical writing in Britain in the last half of the eighteenth and the first quarter of the nineteenth centuries. Readers of this journal, however, may be most interested to know that it is also a book in which Hume figures prominently. One of Phillip’s most involved subtexts aims to explain how it was that Hume, the celebrated historian of the eighteenth century, fell from grace in the nineteenth century.

    Between Hume’s Philosophy and History: Historical Theory and Practice. [REVIEW]Mark G. Spencer - 2004 - Hume Studies 30 (1):198-200.
    This brief book aims to “show an alliance between history and philosophy in Hume’s thought”. Six of its eight chapters are revised essays, published originally in academic journals from 1975 to 1996. These essays are sometimes insightful on the links between Hume’s philosophical and historical thought. But the book’s episodic and disparate origins remain discernible in the finished text, producing uneven results.

    Another "Curious Legend" About Hume's An Abstract of a Treatise of Human Nature.Mark G. Spencer - 2003 - Hume Studies 29 (1):89-98.
    In 1938, J. M. Keynes and P. Sraffa edited and introduced for Cambridge University Press a reprinting of Anof A Treatise of Human Nature. The Abstract they claimed in their subtitle was "A Pamphlet hitherto unknown by DAVID HUME." Arguing against a number of nineteenth and early-twentieth-century scholars who attributed authorship of an abstract of the Treatise to Adam Smith, Keynes and Sraffa convincingly documented in their introductory essay many solid reasons for thinking that the pamphlet being reprinted was Hume's.

    A Bibliography for Hume’s History of England: A Preliminary View.Roger L. Emerson & Mark G. Spencer - 2014 - Hume Studies 40 (1):53-71.
    Recent years have witnessed a renewed scholarly interest in David Hume’s History of England, and this essay adds to that interest by analyzing the sources that Hume used in the History. Unfortunately, Hume did not provide a bibliography or guide to those sources, and no scholar has produced one since. We have been preparing a bibliography for publication and the following essay is a preliminary view of some of what it will show. It demonstrates that Hume consulted and used more (...)

    Fellow-Feeling and the Moral Life (Review).Mark G. Spencer - 2010 - Journal of the History of Philosophy 48 (1):pp. 110-111.
    This study takes as its point of departure a question posed by Francis Hutcheson in An Inquiry into the Original of Our Ideas of Beauty and Virtue, an important text of the Scottish Enlightenment. Hutcheson asked: “Whence arises this Love of Esteem, or Benevolence, to good Men, or to Mankind in general, if not from some nice Views of Self-Interest?” . As will be well known to readers of this journal, Hutcheson in his answer pointed to the workings of a (...)

    A Bibliography for Hume's History of England: A Preliminary View.Roger I. Emerson & Mark G. Spencer - 2014 - Hume Studies 40 (1):53-71.
    Hume’s History of England has received a good deal of attention over the years, but no one has ever systematically studied his sources.1 Instead, scholars have worried about Hume’s biases, his portraits of figures like Charles I, and his alleged scorn for mere antiquarianism, which resulted in a readable but superficial history. The most exciting monograph dealing with his History of England in recent years sees it as a step in the process which led to nineteenth-century historicism. Others have seen (...)

    "Distant and Commonly Faint and Disfigured Originals": Hume's Magna Charta and Sabl's Fundamental Constitutional Conventions.Mark G. Spencer - 2015 - Hume Studies 41 (1):73-80.
    They say you can’t judge a book by its cover. If that is right, it really is too bad in the case of Andrew Sabl’s Hume’s Politics. It is too bad because the reviewer’s job would be exceedingly easy, and very pleasant. By any measure this book has a strikingly fine cover. Its image is drawn from John Byam Liston Shaw’s depiction of Queen Mary and Princess Elizabeth entering London in 1553. Hume’s interpretation of Elizabeth I plays a prominent role (...)
