Summary/Abstract: A selection of D. Hume’s works presents the achievements and opinions of the Scottish author, mainly in the domain of political philosophy. Despite more than two and half centuries passing since the original publication of these works, the modern reader can find in them ever valid and inspiring deliberations on the freedom of speech and civil liberties, the boundaries of political conflict, political parties and factions or the conditions of obedience to authority. Most of the essays collected in the book – today counted among the classics of the genre – appear in Polish for the first time.
