Publisher's Summary

An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals was published in 1751 by Scottish enlightenment philosopher David Hume, a man who revolutionized our understanding of philosophy. Hume uses this work to explore the foundations of morality, asserting that our ethical nature is based upon sentiment rather than reason. He delves deeply into the subject of morality, expanding upon the perspective expressed initially in his Treatise of Human Nature. Hume claimed in his autobiography that this piece is "of all my writings, historical, philosophical, or literary, incomparably the best." Hume was a key figure in the Scottish Enlightenment and his work formed the foundation of modern psychology.

The full narration of this AudioLearn version of Hume's text is preceded by a summary, which includes a biography, background information on the work, and an overview of the material covered. The summary also includes a synopsis and analysis of the text, as well as an examination of its historical context, its social impact, and the criticisms it evoked.

This work is suitable for students of philosophy and psychology, as well as for anyone interested in coming to a deeper understanding of the nature of the mind.
