On Suicide Paperback
by David Hume
Part of the Penguin Great Ideas series
Throughout history, some books have changed the world.
They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other.
They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution.
They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted.
They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.
One of the most important thinkers ever to write in English, the Empiricist David Hume liberated philosophy from the superstitious constraints of religion; here, he argues that all are free to choose between life and death, considers the nature of personal taste and succinctly criticises common philosophies of the time.

Review by wonderperson
I found this book difficult to read as there are 300 suicides of mental health Service users per year and the whole suicide thing affects me greatly. Not the normal engagement I get even with a difficult and demanding text.
