In this article is presented the ethics of David Hume, the tasks which he set before himself, the
principles which he accepted and the conclusions that he drew. The present author has compared
Hume’s ethical views as contained in An Enquiny Concerning the Principles of Morals with the
contents of Volume III of Treatise on Human Nature. Attention is drawn to the differences
between these two works. Next an attempt is made to determine what are the possible
interpretations of Hume’s ethics, if we take into consideration his thesis set out in the Treatise...,
and then again to find an answer to the question, is there one correct interpretation of this thesis.
