About the Authors
  • Hume's discussion of the idea of space in his Treatise on Human Nature is fundamental to an understanding of his treatment of such central issues as the existence of external objects, the unity of the self, and the relation between certainty and belief. Marina Frasca-Spada's rich and original study examines this difficult part of Hume's philosophical writings and connects it to eighteenth-century works in natural philosophy, mathematics and literature. Her analysis points the way to a reassessment of the central current interpretative questions in Hume studies.

    'Frasca-Spada has written an ambitious and engaging work. It deserves careful attention from historians of philosophy, historians of science, intellectual historians, and students of eighteenth-century letters.' British Journal for the History of Philosophy
