The theme of the essay is the problem of personal identity in the philosophy of David
Hume. Firstly, the text presents elements of Hume’s theory of ideas which are required
so as to provide the context for an understanding of his treatment of the issue
of personal identity.
The second section describes Hume’s approach to personal identity with reference to
the pertinent chapter from Hume’s A Treatise of Human Nature. Next, the views of
some of the most quoted of Hume’s commentators are offered in order to broaden
our understanding of certain aspects of Hume’s problem and demonstrate some
shortcomings in his approach.
