The organisation of these lectures might seem odd, with Part 2 so short relative to the others. The reason is that I decided, after having reached Treatise Book 1 Part 2, that it would be best to have a single series of slides for each of Hume's parts – but by then it was too late to merge my own parts 1 and 2.
