(p.125) 6 Into the Labyrinth: Persons, Modality and Hume's Undoing
Projection and Realism in Hume's Philosophy

P. J. E. Kail (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines two subjects. The first is Hume's account of the fictional idea of substantial self and the sense in which it is projective. The second is an attempt to locate the source of Hume's famous disquiet with his account of personal identity. It is argued that an otherwise recalcitrant feature of Hume's texts becomes perspicuous when viewed from the perspective of realism about necessary connection.

Keywords:   self, appendix, personal identity, projection, necessity
