I am going to be taking an undergraduate course with a prof who marks quite severely. She mentioned that the course expects a working knowledge of Early Modern Philosophy, and specifically to read the first 4 sections of Hume's Inquiry Concerning Human Understanding.
Was just wondering if anyone else could recommend some authors, or excerpts of authors that are economic enough to be read alongside the course and might help me with my understanding? I understand that the whole history of philosophy informs itself, and that any author is better read not in isolation. But with that said, if someone was taking a course on Kant without any direct background in Early Modern Philosophy, who would you recommend they read? And most helpful will be specific sections/excerpts, as I won't be able to really read any full length books alongside the course.
