A Treatise of Human Nature is a book by philosopher David Hume, first published in 1739. It is considered as his most important work, as well as generally one of the most influential works of philosophy. Seeking to investigate human psychology and aiming to discover the extent and force of human understanding, Hume argues that passion, and not reason, is the key to human behaviour; that our beliefs regarding cause and effect cannot be justified by reason and in fact is the result of habit and custom. Later, Hume reworked 'A Treatise of Human Nature' into two books, An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding and An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals, commenting that there were 'negligences in his former reasoning'.

This book has 400 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1739-1740.
