0 Reviews
This set presents dozens of early biographically-related discussions of Hume in their most complete form, reset, annotated and introduced by James Fieser. It includes anecdotes, discussions of Hume as an infidel, and fictitious dialogues in which Hume is a character. It also contains newly discovered accounts of Hume's alleged secret deathbed anguish, and the most detailed bibliography yet of eighteenth and nineteenth-century responses to Hume. The final volume concludes with an index to the complete ten-volume collection.
