4 It seems, however, to be a feeling from which, for all his alleged modesty, Hume was never estranged. He remained disappointed about the reception of the Treatise舒blaming himself in part, and probably mistakenly, in attributing its poor reception to stylistic issues. The simpler explanation is that it is a difficult and challenging book and like much, if not all, good philosophy it can be tedious at times. In the first essay of Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding Hume acknowledges that 舠serious philosophy舡 cannot always be written in a way that is easy to understand.

But if any one should deny this universal resemblance, I know no way of convincing him, but by desiring him to shew a simple impression, that has not a correspondent idea, or a simple idea, that has not a correspondent impression. If he does not answer this challenge, as 舗tis certain he cannot, we may from his silence and our own observation establish our conclusion. Thus we find, that all simple ideas and impressions resemble each other; and as the complex are formed from them, we may affirm in general, that these two species of perception are exactly correspondent.
