"Peter Millican's Reading Hume on Human Understanding is a comprehensive overview of the philosophy of the first Enquiry and of the secondary literature on that work... future scholars will be able to review an outstanding collection of summary descriptions of books and articles on Hume and the first Enquiry, and will be that much more quickly able to focus their research and inform their reflections. We all owe him for that...In sum, this is a very valuable book, which succeeds admirably in its aim of providing a guide to advanced study of the first Enquiry. It would be an excellent choice for a graduate seminar, and it deserves to be on every Hume scholar's reference shelf."--Hume Studies
