some pre-article info[edit]

The table of contents for the enquiry added.Lucidish 05:48, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

things to do[edit]

- Comparisons with the Treatise -- personal identity -- associations between ideas

- Critiques -- in psychology -- in philosophy --- Kant- Kant's entire philosophy is a rejoinder to Hume. Given that Kant's philosophy has been one of the most influential innovations in the history of ideas, it would be negligent not to mention it.

The mention of animals exhibiting creativity has nothing to do with Hume's notion of causation.

Thesis?[edit]

How about adding a sentence or two about what the main thesis of the book is above the summaries of the chapters?

Dogmatic slumber[edit]

The expression dogmatic slumber used by Kant has become quite notable, and I'm thinking that with adequate research, it might even be deserving of its own deserving essay or article, as long as a sufficient number of sources are provided. ADM (talk) 05:00, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Publisher?[edit]

The article says that the book was "published in 1748" but it doesn't say who the publisher or printing house was. Presumably this was in England but this is also not made clear - was it published out of London? Usually an article about a book on Wikipedia will "spell out" who the publisher or printing house was and which city it was published out of. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.127.200.152 (talk) 01:31, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
