Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have
transformed the way we see ourselves � and each other. They have inspired
debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged,
provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives � and destroyed them. Now
Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and
visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.
One of the most important thinkers ever to write in English, the Empiricist
David Hume liberated philosophy from the superstitious constraints of
religion; here, he argues that all are free to choose between life and
death, considers the nature of personal taste and succinctly criticises
common philosophies of the time.
