Notes on Hume - A Treatise of Human Nature, I.I.IIAn absolutely crucial aspect of Hume’s Treatise is the fact that, again, unlike Descartes and Hegel, the mind is not a “thing”:  rather, it is a system.  The mind is a an aggregate set consisting of perceptions and relations organized by principles.  Thus, the question of process and becoming are absolutely crucial; being is pretty much always secondary.  Concepts are best understood in terms of their mutual interrelation:  as his criticism of Hume makes clear, this is something Kant was never really able to grasp.
