Abstract

David Hume: Bicentenary Papers, edited by G. P. Morice. Edinburgh University Press and University of Texas Press, 1977. viii + 232 pp. »8.00 ($10.95). Anyone who attended the superbly organized Hume bicentenary week in Edinburgh in 1976 will be glad to have this commemorative volume. It comes with the usual printed elegance, and inflated blurb, of an Edinburgh Press production, but with less than their customary typographical accuracy.
