Jay L. Garfield defends two exegetical theses regarding Hume's Treatise on Human Nature. The first is that Book II is the theoretical foundation of the Treatise. Second, Garfield argues that we cannot understand Hume's project without an appreciation of his own understanding of custom, and in particular, without an appreciation of the grounding of his thought about custom in the legal theory and debates of his time. Custom is the source of Hume's thoughts about normativity, not only in ethics and in political theory, but also in epistemological, linguistics, and scientific practice- and is the source of his insight that our psychological and social natures are so inextricably linked. The centrality of custom and the link between the psychological and the social are closely connected, which is why Garfield begins with Book II. There are four interpretative perspectives at work in this volume: one is a naturalistic skeptical interpretation of Hume's Treatise; a second is the foregrounding of Book II of the Treatise as foundational for Books I and III. A third is the consideration of the Treatise in relation to Hume's philosophical antecedents (particularly Sextus, Bayle, Hutcheson, Shaftesbury, and Mandeville), as well as eighteenth century debates about the status of customary law, with one eye on its sequellae in the work of Kant, the later Wittgenstein, and in contemporary cognitive science. The fourth is the Buddhist tradition in which many of the ideas Hume develops are anticipated and articulated in somewhat different ways. Garfield presents Hume as a naturalist, a skeptic and as, above all, a communitarian. In offering this interpretation, he provides an understanding of the text as a whole in the context of the literature to which it responded, and in the context of the literature it inspired.

Maya has lost her sense of self. An underappreciated stay-at-home mom in an unhappy marriage, she embarks on a week-long solo vacation with the hope of finding herself again. But as she arrives in sultry North Florida, she thinks all that awaits her is umbrella drinks, warm sand, and a new perspective. Maya has no idea her entire life is about to change. Maya just wants to feel young and sexy again. As she enjoys a drink at a tiki bar on her first night, she is lost in her thoughts—until a dashing man introduces himself. After Rafael and Maya share an intimate dance, they part for the night. Maya thinks it is nothing but an innocent attraction— until two goons show up at her door a few minutes later and reveal they are holding her sister hostage. Suddenly, Maya is caught not only in a dangerous web of deception, but also a passionate affair with Rafael—who is actually a CIA agent in the midst of a complicated case. In this sexy, romantic tale, a woman lost in the demands of motherhood and a lifeless marriage sets out to find happiness and discovers her true self in the process.

First published in 2006. Women and Romanticism’s third volume covers Poetics, the Novel and Authorship and brings together work on poetics, the novel and authorship. Joanna Baillie and Elizabeth Hamilton wrote manifestoes not terribly different in kind from those produced by William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and excerpts from their work are included here. But Romantic-era women writers more often make statements about art and poetics covertly, in poems and in tales as well as in biographical writing, and the editor acknowledges this tendency in the third volume by drawing upon these genres. Until the 1980s, a five-volume collection of materials on ‘Women and Romanticism’ would have been inconceivable, since Romantic studies largely restricted itself to a consideration of the major male poets of the period (William Blake, William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley and John Keats), When women were present in accounts of Romanticism, they were considered in terms of their literary function (as objects of representation), or in relation to their domestic (as mothers, daughters, wives and lovers of the authors). Indeed, the first Romantic women writers to enter academic discourse were those with familial connections to the canonized poets: Mary Wollstonecraft, Mary Shelley and Dorothy Wordsworth. Other writers of interest in the 1970s included Frances Burney and Jane Austen.
