I don't think I am following here. I just finished book 1 of the Treatise
and I got no sense that Hume was trying to disestablish anything but reason
itself. I certainly didn't get the part about no room for doubting;
rather, I got the sense that there is no room for beleiving. Am I missing
the skeptical solution.
