David Hume – An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding – Section 3

David Hume portrait.

This is the third part of a twelve-part series, where I will share my summaries of sections (chapters) of David Hume’s An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding. I would be making these summaries for myself regardless, however, I realized they might come in useful to some philosophy undergrads who are late with their assignment. These are very short summaries based on how much of space was available in my notebook with two pages dedicated to each section. Hume’s special vocabulary for certain sections took up a great deal of space and thus the summaries had to be shortened. Regardless, I hope you will find some of Hume’s thoughts interesting and maybe you will pick up the book yourself.
