David Hume's aim in writing this text was to introduce his philosophy to a European culture in which many educated people read original works of philosophy. It gives a presentation of original and challenging views about the limited powers of human understanding, the attractions of scepticism, the compatibility of free will and determinism, and weaknesses in the foundations of religion. Hume's philosophy was highly controversial in the 18th century and remains so today.
