Book Description

In 1756 a volume of Hume's essays entitled Five Dissertations was printed and ready for distribution. But two of the essays -- Of Suicide and Of the Immortality of the Soul -- made direct attacks on common religious doctrines, and were considered far too controversial. The printed copies of Five Dissertations were physically altered, with a nw essay, Of the Standard of Taste being added to the other three -- The Natural History of Religion, A Dissertation on the Passions, and Of Tragedy -- in place of the two excised essays. The essays were then bound with a new title, Four Dissertations, and distributed in January 1757.

The present volume adds the two essays originally taken out and includes Hume's extended Dedication, a passionate endorsement of intellectual and artistic freedom.
