Review of Metaphysics 44 (2):409-411 (1990)

The name Nicholas Capaldi is well known to students of David Hume, since Capaldi has been a key figure in the Hume renaissance of the last quarter century. Over a span of two decades he has written numerous articles on Hume, edited anthologies, and authored two Hume books, of which this is the second. The quality of this work will therefore surprise no one; Hume's Place in Moral Philosophy is a first rate piece of scholarship. Capaldi concentrates here on the Treatise and the second Enquiry, as is proper, but he knows the rest of Hume and Hume scholarship so well that the book cannot be said to neglect anything of importance.
