Pressestimmen

These new Oxford University Press editions have been meticulously collated from various exatant versions. Each text has an excellent introduction including an overview of Hume's thought and an account of his life and times. Even the difficult, and rarely commented-on, chapters on space and time are elucidated. There are also useful notes on the text and glossary. These scholarly new editions are ideally adapted for a whole range of readers, from beginners to experts. Jane O'Grady, Catholic Herald, 4/8/00. One of the greatest of all philosophical works, covering knowledge, imaginatio, emotion, morality and justice. Hume is down-to-earth, capable of putting other, pretentious philosophers down, but deeply sceptical even about his own reasoning. Baroness Warnock, The List, The Week 18/11/2000

Synopsis

A Treatise of Human Nature (1739-40), David Hume's comprehensive attempt to base philosophy on a new, observationally grounded study of human nature, is one of the most important texts in Western philosophy. It is also the focal point of current attempts to understand 18th-century philosophy. The Treatise first explains how we form such concepts as cause and effect, external existence, and personal identity, and to form compelling but unconfirmable beliefs in the entities represented by these concepts. It then offers a novel account of the passions, explains freedom and necessity as they apply to human choices and actions, and concludes with detailed explanations of how we distinguish between virtue and vice and of the different kinds of virtue. Hume's Abstract of the Treatise, also included in the volume, outlines his 'chief argument' regarding our conception of, and belief in, cause and effect. The texts printed in this volume are those of the critical edition of Hume's philosophical works now being published by the Clarendon Press.

The volume includes a substantial introduction explaining the aims of the Treatise as a whole and of each of its ten parts, extensive annotations, a glossary of terms, a comprehensive index, and suggestions for further reading.

Über die Wichtigkeit dieses Buches und die Bedeutung David Humes müssen hier nicht viele Worte verloren werden. Humes Traktat gehört für Studenten und Studentinnen der Philosophie zur Pflichtlektüre. Insbesondere empfehle ich, Hume in der englischen Original-Fassung zu lesen, da sein Stil wirklich grandios ist. Dem philosophisch interessierten würde ich jedoch von einer Lektüre des Traktates abraten: die beiden "Untersuchungen" und die "Dialoge" werden Ihnen mehr Vergnügen bereiten, als der traktat welcher ein schwergewichtiges philosophisches Werk ist (mit vielen Längen)!

Nun aber zur Ausgabe:

Hier gibt es wirklich nichts auszusetzen! Die Ausgabe ist auf dem neuesten Stand, da sie auf dem Text der kritischen Gesamtausgabe (Clarendon edition ...) beruht und ist daher voll zitierfähig. Die Einleitung von D.F. Norton ist wirklich sehr lesenswert und fast auf dem aktuellen Stand (von 2000). Darüber hinaus gibt es einen Anmerkungsteil mit Zusammenfassungen von jedem Abschnitt des Buches und Erläuterungen von alten und daher nicht mehr selbstverständlichen Ausdrücken und Verweisen bzw. Anspielungen Humes, die dem Leser nicht unbedingt klar seinen dürften. Hervorzuheben ist auch die sehr gute Bibliographie, die es einem ermöglicht sich schnell einen Überblick über die Hume-Forschung zu verschaffen. Natürlich ist auch eine Konkordanz mit der SBN-Ausgabe enthalten, so dass man alle alle Zitate, die mna sonst in der Literatur findet auch nachschlagen kann.

Auch die Qualität des Buches kann überzeugen: das Papier hat ein angenehmes Weiß und auch nach mehrfachem Lesen besitzt meine ausgabe noch alle Seiten;)

Fazit:

Meiner Ansicht nach DIE Ausgabe des Treatise für jeden, der sich ernsthaft mit David Hume beschäftigen möchte.

The Oxford Philosophical Texts series bills itself as "complete editions for students," and the texts do live up to their promise. Hume's "A Treatise of Human Nature" is an excellent text and resource for the student. David Fate Norton's Introduction itself is worth the price of the book. In addition to the Introduction, this edition includes Hume's "An Abstract of . . . A Treatise of Human Nature," Editor's Annotations to both the "Treatise" and the "Abstract," a glossary, and references cited by Hume and by the Editor. This edition should be the standard student edition of the "Treatise."

Marvelous work of literature accomplished by an extraordinary philosopher, which is for some reason not often taught in the universities. Hume brilliantly compares and contrasts ideas and impressions in a way that one can understand easily. Hume is not known as an easy reader, but in this particular work he has done some justice to the masses with limited philosophical understandings.

Format: Taschenbuch
A new edition of the classical, look-simple but philosophically complex masterpiece of the Scot. Norton do a nice work in making clear contexts to many passages and explicating arguments. While the Penelhume and Noonan recent introductions are good (the former focusing mainly on the Enquiry), the serious student should read directly this text. The present edition along with the commentary by Johnson on the first book are strongly recommended.

HASH(0x9b277af8) von 5 Sternen Be Aware 9. Dezember 2001
Von Christopher A. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Be aware that the reviews for a book are displayed not only for one edition, but for all editions under the same title. The Oxford Philosophical Texts edition of Hume's "Treatise" should be the standard student edition. The Prometheus Books edition is cheap, but it does not include a modern introduction or any study notes. I recommend the Oxford Philosophical Texts version if you want or need more than just the raw text.

HASH(0x9b277d44) von 5 Sternen Oxford's edition by the Nortons is the only one to buy 23. November 2004
Von James Fieser - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Since Hume's Treatise first appeared in 1739-1740, several distinct editions have been published. While most of these are fine for casual use, the Oxford University Press edition, recently prepared by David and Mary Norton, stands alone as an outstanding scholarly achievement. Their edition, at present only available in the Oxford Philosophical Texts student edition, will within the next year or so also be available in a scholarly edition (Oxford's Clarendon Edition). These two versions have the same text of the Treatise. The difference between them lies in their introductions and annotations, which are suited to different sets of readers. Part of the value of both versions lies in these exceptional introductions and annotations. The other part, though, involves the Nortons' editing of the text of the Treatise itself, which, ironically, makes their edition more accurate than Hume's original. While the original edition of the Treatise was being printed, Hume instructed the printer to make changes to the text, and thus some first editions read differently than others. The Nortons have compared first-edition copies of the Treatise page by page to locate these changes. Pen in hand, Hume also scribbled other changes into several printed copies of the Treatise; the Nortons have accounted for those alterations as well. These are just two examples of many editorial tasks that have gone into making this the definitive edition of Hume's Treatise, the edition which will remain the standard for decades. Let me add a word regarding the critical comments that an anonymous amazon.com reviewer made about the Nortons' edition ("A reader", January 18, 2003). This reviewer's comments may be well-meaning, but I can say with confidence there is little substance to her/his objections. The edition has been widely hailed as a triumph by Hume scholars and scholarly reviewers, and the philosophy editors at Oxford University Press tell me they are completely delighted with the work.

HASH(0x9b277f84) von 5 Sternen The Greatest Achievement of Our Greatest Philosopher 26. Mai 2004
Von ctdreyer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Before he chose to diddle away his later years writing book after book of history, playing house with Rousseau, annoying the religious authorities, and forging a lasting reputation as an all-around good guy, Hume dedicated his youth to writing the this book, which is nothing less than the single greatest work of philosophy in the English language. Indeed, I don't think there are even any other close competitors for that title. Naturally, then, this work was largely ignored during Hume's lifetime.
Notwithstanding the widely told, and somewhat accurate, standard story of the history of modern philosophy according to which Kant's rearguard action in response to Hume is the culmination of the modern period, I think that this book rather than Kant's First Critique is where it's at. Certainly, no book of modern philosophy compares to this complex, intricately argued, inspiring, maddening, imaginative, iconoclastic, encyclopedic tome when it comes to influence on contemporary philosophers in the Anglo-American analytic tradition. And while it's true that Kant's system is almost unparalleled in the breadth of its influence, defenders of the traditional story of modern philosophy need to remember that 'almost'. For it seems to me that, among the moderns, Hume got there first. He, and not Kant, is the first modernist whose importance is manifest in all the main areas of philosophy: epistemology (skepticism and the problem of induction), metaphysics (causation, personal identity, etc.), philosophy of mind (action theory, rationality) meta-ethics (meta-ethical subjectivism, proto-noncognitivism, reason vs. emotions, moral psychology, etc.), normative ethics (importance of benevolence, justice as an artificial virtue, etc.).
Want some evidence of Hume's pervasive influence? It's not just that everyone working in this tradition has read Hume, though they have. Nor is it just that Hume's stamp is all over the concerns and positions of contemporary philosophers, though it is. Nor is it just that Hume's influence is celebrated (or bemoaned) by pretty much every philosopher you come across, though that's true as well. No, the true measure of his intellectual ascendancy is that there's a position dubbed "Humean" in pretty much every area of philosophy, and, depending on one's view of the topic, it's either the obviously correct view--it was Hume's position, after all!--or a pernicious heresy for which no good arguments have been provided and for which there isn't good reason to think it was even Hume's actual position. You know you've made it when both the defenders of the status quo and those who can't abide that status quo claim you as their own.
Why is Hume so important? I think there are two reasons, each corresponding to one of the influential interpretations of Hume's work as a whole. The first interpretation of Hume's corpus sees it as shot through with a radical skepticism about anything and everything, and corresponding to this interpretation is a conception of Hume's importance as consisting in his occupying the place of the philosopher opponent of common sense par excellence. Hume, according to this interpretation, takes the empiricism of Locke, which in his hands looks like nothing so much as self-conscious common sense, and wields it as a weapon against more or less everything we tend to believe. That is, we should see Hume as taking up the empiricism of Locke and Berkeley and pushes it to its logical conclusion: a thoroughgoing skepticism. Think you can know there is a mind-independent world of physical objects? Think you're a single person who persists through time? Think things stand in causal relationships to one another? Think you can know whether the sun will explode tomorrow? You should think again, Hume says, and he's happy to show you why empiricism leads to this conclusion. So, if this is right, the importance of Hume's project consists in its status as a for rationalists, for non-skeptics of all stripes, and for all ordinary, right-thinking folks.
Now, undoubtedly, there's some truth in the stereotypical view of Hume as the young radical who took empiricism to its implausible limits. But this isn't where his true importance lies--at least not among contemporary philosophers. What has been most influential among contemporary exponents of the Anglo-American analytic tradition is Hume's unrepentant and radical naturalism. This interpretation of his project downplays Hume's skepticism and emphasizes his professed intentions to provide a positive account of the operation of the human mind that appealed to nothing beyond the evidence of our senses. According to proponents of this interpretation, Hume is most interested in a description of the operation of the human mind. He's describing what human nature allows us to know and what it doesn't allow us to know. Here Hume's importance consists not in his providing a challenge to the views of philosophers and of the hoi polloi, but in his providing us with a model of how philosophy should be done.
I feel that I've strayed somewhat from the topic of the book here, but I suppose that was inevitable. It would, of course, have been pointless to attempt to summarize Hume's arguments, or even his conclusions, in a review of this length. The only summary of this book's content that the reader needs is this: Hume discusses nearly everything of importance in philosophy, and his discussions of nearly every issue reveal an unsurpassed (and rarely equaled) level of philosophical brilliance.
To whom do I recommend this book? The answer, in short, is everyone. If you're even slightly interested in philosophy, you simply can't get by without reading this. If you're at all interested in the history of ideas, you need to read this. If you're the slightest bit curious about our modern worldview and its origin, it would be a good idea for you to read this. If you're interested enough in Hume to have come across this review and read it to this point, you'll want to read this.
Concerning editions of this book. I wish Amazon would separate the various editions of this book so I could review them separately, but they haven't. I'd recommend either the edition jointly edited by the Nortons and published in the Oxford Philosophical Texts series or the Selby-Bigge edition, which was for some time the standard edition of the Treatise.

HASH(0x9b1ea300) von 5 Sternen The end of Philosophy? 11. Oktober 2003
Von skytwo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
That's an overstatement, certainly, but David Hume's 'Treatise of Human Nature' is unquestionably one of the most influential and important works of philosophy in the history of mankind. And considering current trends in academia, it is more timely than ever. As an undergraduate, I remember being stunned by Hume's seemingly irrefutable arguments on the nature of reason and reality. As a graduate student often disturbed by the uncritical acceptance of faddish theories, I was amazed to find that Hume is as relevant today as he was over two hundred and fifty years ago. Within the first few pages of the book, he manages to outline an intellectual framework that even today makes the arguments of the most highly-regarded theorists sound hollow and jargonistic.
Hume's ideas are now so widely accepted and taught that they affect the way we interact with the world on a daily basis, whether we realize it or not. Yet Hume was also groundbreaking in another sense-- he made profound philosophical ideas accessible, and even entertaining. Not only is the 'Treatise' notable for its clarity, but for a wit and charm that make it nearly as pleasant to read as Dumas' 'Three Musketeers.' No mean feat for a man recording ideas that would shape the course of Western civilization. Small wonder that even as philosophers acknowledge him as one of the greats of the discipline, so many have sought to emulate his clear prose, free as it is of jargon, neologisms, or esoteric concepts.
And as if that weren't enough, Hume was such a decent and well-liked individual in his own lifetime that he was referred to as 'le bon David' in France and 'St. David' in his native Scotland. It's a shame that not all of history's giants can be so appealing.

HASH(0x9b1ea0b4) von 5 Sternen Important to Know Which Edition You're Buying 2. April 2015
Von Lucian of Samosata - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The worst feature of Amazon is their lumping together of multiple editions of a single title, which is usually the case with the classics. It's very important to know which version you're buying.

1. The best, most scholarly, most recent version is Oxford's Clarendon Edition, "Volume 1: Texts," edited by David Fate Norton and Mary J. Norton, published 14 June 2007. This has the portrait of Hume on the cover. There are no footnotes or much of an introduction, because all of that appears in the substantial Vol. 2, so you really need both volumes. This edition retains the original spelling, when contractions were more common than they are now, which can be trying sometimes (suppos'd for supposed, tho' for though, and so on).

2. The Oxford Philosophical Texts Edition, also edited by the Nortons, is an earlier (2000) version, more geared toward students. This has a text-only green cover. This is good if you just want a single volume without the excess and detail of the above.

3. The older, pre-Norton standard edition, edited by L. A. Selby-Bigge, also published by Oxford, dates from 1896, and was continually reprinted until the 1970s or '80s. Pay attention if buying a used version published by Oxford -- most copies on sale will be reprints of the Selby-Bigge (these are common), not the more recent Norton. Most dealers do not specify which one they are selling. (You can get a PDF of this edition from an online Archive site.)

4. The Penguin Classics edition is the best if you're looking for just the text with some clarifying footnotes.

5. The Prometheus Books (text only, light yellow cover with green border) edition is a straight 1992 reprint (with the same type) of the 1896 Oxford edition, which apparently was out of copyright at the time (or perhaps Prometheus just stole it). It is cheap but really useless, since there are no footnotes or editorial additions of any kind. Not recommended.

Or, you can always buy a copy of the first edition from 1739 for $ 22,911.81.
