Themes in Hume: The Self, the Will, Religion [Book Review]

Review of Metaphysics 55 (4):871-872 (2002)


Terence Penelhum is among the most distinguished of contemporary philosophical commentators on Hume. This welcome volume collects thirteen of his essays, three previously unpublished, on Hume’s theory of the self, moral psychology, and philosophy of religion. It displays the intelligence and sympathy, the historical astuteness and critical acumen, that have marked Penelhum’s writings on Hume for more than forty years.
