From the book reviews:

“Rocknak’s strategic choice of subject matter, the simplicity and explanatory power of her main argument, together with her painstaking, detailed work on the relevant texts, make this a breakthrough work in Hume’s psychology. Indeed, it deserves to be regarded as the most important book on Hume published in more than a decade. … We are very fortunate to have this volume, which moves us firmly forward in understanding Hume’s model of the mind … .” (Yoram Hazony, British Journal for the History of Philosophy, August, 2014)

“‘The principle of individuation is nothing but the invariableness and uninterruptedness of any object, thro’ a suppos'd variation of time’. Stefanie Rocknak's Imagined Causes is a highly original, exceptionally thorough, and extremely controversial attempt to provide a comprehensive account of how Hume reaches that conclusion.” (William Edward Morris, The Philosophical Quarterly, January, 2014)
